Course Description

This course offers you a high degree of flexibility with the option to select one major and two minor areas of study. This provides you with the opportunity to explore areas that interest you as well as developing knowledge and skills in areas of emerging priority and employment. You may also complete studies in complementary disciplines from across the university including law, business, engineering, or innovation and entrepreneurship.

You will be taught by leading researchers from the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, the Translational Research Institute and partner research facilities at major Brisbane hospitals. In recent years, QUT researchers have made groundbreaking discoveries in cancer biology, infectious diseases, tissue engineering and vaccine development.

You will have the opportunity to gain real experience through a supervised work placement in an industry, clinical or research-oriented workplace.

Develop practical training by participating in laboratory classes held in state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories. Every unit in this course includes a laboratory component so you can develop and practise key technical skills, explore real experiments and case studies, and learn in an environment that stimulates collaboration and advanced thinking processes.

You will graduate as a critical thinker who can develop your own innovative ideas and successfully implement these through a range of clinical, research and industry-based careers.
