Do you want to move straight into a qualification where you can learn about the scientific basis of human health? Do you want to deal with real-life health and medical issues like new diseases, old diseases that resist treatment, the role of molecular biology in health, and new and improved drugs?
Biomedical science at Victoria is the area of study that relates to human health and diseases. It covers the whole of a human life, from reproduction to ageing, taking in microbiology and pharmacology along the way.
The Bachelor of Biomedical Science (BBmedSc) can be the first step towards a career in medicine and other health-related careers, or lead to work in health research. As a BBmedSc student you choose one of three specialisations: Human Genetics, Molecular Pathology, or Molecular Pharmacology and Medicinal Chemistry.
Biomedical Science is taught as a full undergraduate degree programme. More information about the degree is available on the Faculty of Science website.
Information about postgraduate study in Biomedical Science can be found on the School of Biological Sciences website.
