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.
Our Bachelor of Health Science leads to a wide range of rewarding jobs in the fast-growing health industry — or more specialised postgraduate study.
You’ll have access to cutting-edge, industry-relevant tech in our campus labs; prepping you for a career that relies on it.
You’ll complete core units across multiple fields of health science to explore contemporary challenges and their possible interventions along with a major based on your interest and career aspirations. This could lead to postgraduate studies at Swinburne in physiotherapy, dietetics, occupational therapy or counselling.
All our bachelor degrees include a guaranteed Work Integrated Learning opportunity, which could be a placement, internship or industry-linked project. In this degree, a major component of your studies will be an industry-linked project, which addresses a current industry challenge. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply for a career-focused placement or an internship, allowing you to build a professional network before you graduate.
