With a biomedical degree, you’ll learn to analyse and interpret complex data, then use it to make a positive difference to people’s lives.

Explore biology, medicine, disease, chemistry and physiology (all touchpoints of biomedical science degrees) and apply your fundamental understanding of human anatomy, microbiology, biochemistry and physiology to real-world situations.

At Swinburne, studying biomedical science isn’t just about theory. You’ll  have access to research labs and the latest instruments in healthcare technology to give you the experience you’ll need to change lives. 

In fact, we’re the only university in Australia with MRI and MEG labs on campus, so by the time you graduate, you’ll be confident in using the latest technology available. Browse our courses to find detailed course information, application dates, entry requirements, fees, subjects, ATAR calculator and more.
