Bachelor degree (honours)
Biomedical Science Advanced (Honours) is a high-profile course designed for talented students who expect to pursue a career in biomedical research. It is an advanced version of the Bachelor of Biomedical Science, providing outstanding opportunities to develop research, communication and teamwork skills during your undergraduate studies.
The course is your invitation to join one of the largest and most successful medical-research hubs in Australia and the world. Our multidisciplinary approach, presence in major hospitals and links to international researchers is making a difference to people's lives worldwide.
Your studies are guided by leading researchers and educators, and, in your research-based Honours year, you could contribute to our world-renowned work in using stem cells to save snow leopards, treat bowel cancer and repair damaged brains in babies.
The Biomedical Science course covers the themes of molecular and cellular biology, body systems, infection and immunity, disease and society, and the diagnosic and research tools. Electives allow you to design a specialised program around your particular interests, or you can choose units from other faculties to broaden your horizon.
Your advanced studies in Biomedical Science, by way of the fourth year Honours research program, will extend your discipline knowledge and develop your ability to critically evaluate biomedical research and to apply appropriate methodologies to conduct independent research in biomedical science. Areas in which you may undertake research include anatomy, developmental biology, biochemistry, epidemiology, genetics, immunology, molecular biology, pharmacology and preventive medicine. The Honours year will enable you to develop strong problem-solving skills and the ability to apply analytical thinking.
As a graduate, you will be in a position to pursue an international research career. You may also elect to work in the hospital and medical sectors, including medical diagnostic laboratories; in secondary and tertiary teaching; media and communications; or the government sector, in areas such as health promotion and health economics.
