Course Description

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.

A degree in biomedical science will train students in the core areas of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, immunology and microbiology. Students will be introduced to each of these disciplines via core units and expected to undertake detailed study in at least one discipline, through utilization of elective units. Students will learn how the human body functions, what causes disease and how disease is treated.

A sound theoretical base encompassing the core biomedical science areas will be complemented by lab experience and industry practice. Students will utilise ACU’s cutting-edge wet and dry laboratories on all campuses, and the anatomy laboratories in Brisbane and Sydney.
