Course Information

Medical researchers are a lot like detectives. As they search for leads, uncover clues and ultimately solve mysteries, they also have the thrill of knowing that each scientific discovery they make may turn into a real-world medical treatment. Many current and emerging global challenges are connected to health and medicine, and with health a fast-growing job market, demand is high for those skilled in this field.

The interdisciplinary Bachelor of Medical Sciences will provide you with a broad background in biological, chemical, biomolecular and biomedical sciences – the knowledge and skills you’ll need for a career in health and medical science fields. Whether that be unravelling the molecular building blocks that underpin disease, developing new drugs to treat or cure disease, implementing biosecurity procedures to overcome emerging disease threats, or applying your scientific knowledge to help solve crimes.
