Bachelor of Biomedical Science/Bachelor of Science
The University of Queensland - St Lucia

Course outline

Combine the flexibility and breadth of a science degree with the in-depth knowledge of a biomedical science degree. In your science degree, choose from one of the broadest selections of science disciplines in Queensland to explore an area of your interest or expand your career options. Develop your critical thinking, communication and quantitative reasoning skills. You’ll learn the scientific process through experimental design, computer programming and hands-on experiments. Your biomedical science studies incorporate extensive practical experience, including opportunities to work with researchers making the latest breakthroughs. You’ll study the human body at the molecular, cellular and whole-body levels, and cover biochemistry and cell biology, physiology, developmental biology, microbiology, pharmacology and neuroscience. Apply for a research experience based in one of UQ’s many research institutes or centres, to put your theory into practice. On graduation, you are well prepared for scientific roles in research or industry. For more information, visit Bachelor of Biomedical Science/Bachelor of Science at UQ.
