The Bachelor of Biomedical Science aims to prepare ethical graduates with a concern for the common good, to apply a broad and coherent body of knowledge to undertake professional work in a range of biomedical science contexts, for example in the pharmaceutical and medical technology industries. The course also aims to provide a pathway for postgraduate studies in health disciplines such as physiotherapy, medicine, dentistry and public health for students who wish to pursue a clinical career. Bachelor degree graduates may be eligible to progress to honours study.
The Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Honours) allows students to extend knowledge gained in their undergraduate degree, develop research skills that will equip them for future study at a higher degree level and work closely with an academic expert to contribute to a particular area of interest.
To be eligible to apply for admission to the course, a student must have completed a Bachelor of Biomedical Science and attained a GPA of 5.75.
What’s the difference between medical science and biomedical science?
The name. That’s all there really is to it. Some institutions have both a degree in medical science and one in biomedical science. However the difference will be simply in how the institution administers the degree. For example, the biomedical degree may give students fewer electives. There is no difference between the fields of biomedical science and medical science.
