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.

ACU’s Biomedical Science graduates should be able to demonstrate competence in three main ways: firstly, by having a competent knowledge of the human body’s systems and structure with in-depth knowledge of one system; secondly, by having the generalised ability to retrieve and process large data sets in order to extract meaningful patterns or relationships from these data; and thirdly, by being able to succinctly and clearly explain these data and their knowledge to health consumers and professional audiences.

A number of streams are proposed, and students can undertake either the core biomedical stream, or one of the specialist streams. See More Course Information for further details.

March 2018
Year completed 2019

Positives: the lectures are very friendly and very approachable. It is a great uni for transition from school as it is not very intense

My advice to future students is: Pick this uni if you want to do med as it is easier compared to other unis.
