The Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Science offers you the skills, knowledge and key theoretical insights required to work in a range of professional scientific environments and build a career promoting health and wellbeing.
You'll explore Australian and international health challenges. Examine the physical, psychological and social aspects of health in a variety of settings. And, learn about contemporary issues in health science, such as biomedical testing or health communication, and how to address them.
You'll also access laboratories and testing facilities equipped with the latest technology – Swinburne is the only university in Australia with MRI and MEG labs on campus.
Build up your CV with real industry experience while you study through our Work Integrated Learning programs, which are a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees and can include placements, internships or industry-linked projects. In this double degree, in the Health Sciences Project (HEA30001), and Grand Challenges in Science (NPS30003), you’ll have the opportunity to apply your learning and work collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams on an industry-linked project.
Selected major: Biomedical Science
Use cutting-edge, interactive tech to understand the human body in a range of health and disease states and become a research assistant, lab scientist or tech product specialist.
What is Biomedical Science? It’s the broad study of biological sciences; including anatomy, biochemistry, genomics, immunology, molecular biology, pathology and physiology.
We use the same bioinformatics software as industry professionals, and with a tap of your fingers, you can dissect a virtual cadaver to learn about its body parts in intricate detail. We have recently incorporated contemporary units of study in Pathophysiology, Infections and Immunology and Genes and Genomics units to add depth and greater industry-relevance to your studies.
Our students have completed professional experiences at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Royal Children’s Hospital, Royal Melbourne Hospital, St Vincent's and GlaxoSmithKline.
