A Bachelor of Biomedical Science at UON will give you the opportunity to study a wide range of courses. You will be exposed to varying modes of study including face-to-face and online learning. We also offer plenty of hands-on experience in clinical laboratories and industry environments.

Students will study core courses that provide advanced theoretical knowledge in:

  • physiology
  • anatomy
  • biochemistry
  • medical genetics
  • immunology

These core courses maximise flexibility for students and provide a solid base of knowledge and skills in the biomedical disciplines.

Majors

You will have the opportunity to choose one of three majors to allow you to build your skills and knowledge in your area of interest.

Advanced study options

An Honours degree equips you with highly sought after and respected skills and knowledge, giving you a competitive advantage.

With increasing competition in all sectors of employment, students who graduate with an Honours degree have a distinct advantage. It is often considered by employers as an added skill and has been used by previous graduates to pursue higher positions and salaries. Honours also sets the foundations of potential for further academic study, such as a PhD, or improving your chances of gaining entry into other degrees.

The Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Honours) is a one-year full-time (or equivalent part-time) degree that allows you to complete research in a topic of interest in biomedical science.
