Study at ACU Nutrition And Biomedical Science

About nutrition and biomedical science

Combine your love of health and science with a passion for improving the wellbeing of individuals and communities. A degree in nutrition or biomedical science will give you the skills required to influence general healthcare, chronic disease management and disease prevention. You’ll be able to dive deep into anatomy, biochemistry, immunology, pharmacology, physiology and microbiology and take on decision-making roles in medicine, healthcare, nutrition, medical technology, and preventative and environmental health.

Choose a career that’s going places

With an increasingly health focused society, employment of nutritionists and dieticians is rising with jobs set to grow strongly in the next five years.

Choose your own adventure

Choose a specialisation that focuses on your key interests. Majors are available in physiological pharmacology, and minors are available in physiology, pharmacology, nutrition and chemistry.

Hands-on experience

Put theory into practice with extensive lab experience and workplace learning opportunities alongside qualified scientists.

Study health overseas

During your course you’ll have the opportunity to study public health overseas. Our short-term international study experiences can take you to Timor Leste, Vanuatu, the USA, Singapore, Chile and many more destinations, where you’ll study at a partner university or put your skills into practice at local health clinics. Plus, you can choose to study at our Rome Campus.

“ACU’s atmosphere is both relaxed and studious, and the facilities are exactly what I need to succeed. The fantastic teaching staff have encouraged my progress.

I hope to enter medicine after my Bachelor of Biomedical Science and one day provide healthcare for those in low socioeconomic circumstances.”
