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.

The Bachelor of Health Science (Professional) is designed to prepare you for careers promoting health and wellbeing.

You'll have access to laboratories and testing facilities equipped with the latest technology – Swinburne is the only university in Australia with MRI and MEG labs on campus.

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.

All our bachelor degrees include a guaranteed Work Integrated Learning opportunity, which could be a placement, internship or industry-linked project. This Professional Degree includes a mandatory 12-month paid professional work placement. You'll benefit from Swinburne’s unique industry partnerships, gain invaluable full-time work experience and earn credit towards your degree. You'll also have the opportunity to apply your learning in a professionally focused, multidisciplinary industry-based project during your final year of study.

Graduates will be ready to discover rewarding careers in counselling, community development, health communication, disability, social welfare or medical research. Graduates may also progress to postgraduate study in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy or nursing.
