A stand out feature of the Bachelor of Biotechnology is the 10 week full-time industrial placement that you can undertake in your final year.

This is the longest placement available to students studying biotechnology in the country. It allows you to apply what you have learnt to a biotechnology environment and broadens your experience in preparation for your future.

The biotechnology degree has a strong focus on 'hands on' learning and in the third year of the degree you will have the opportunity to spend a whole week at a time in laboratory training. These intense laboratory courses feature teamwork activities that will help prepare you for the workplace.

Additionally, Bachelor of Biotechnology students are eligible to enrol in SCIT3600 which offers you the opportunity to undertake an international placement to expand the theoretical knowledge and skills developed in this program and apply knowledge and skills in an external and international context.
