Bachelor of Biomedical Science
Application deadlines: 21 July
International tuition: A$23,624
Domestic tuition: A$9,003
A degree in biomedical science will train students in the core areas of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, immunology and microbiology. Students will be introduced to each of these disciplines via core units and expected to undertake detailed study in at least one discipline, through utilization of elective units. Students will learn how the human body functions, what causes disease and how disease is treated. A sound theoretical base encompassing the core biomedical science areas will be complemented by lab experience and industry practice. Students will utilise ACU’s cutting-edge wet and dry laboratories on all campuses, and the anatomy laboratories in Brisbane and Sydney. ACU’s Biomedical Science graduates should be able to demonstrate competence in three main ways: firstly, by having a competent knowledge of the human body’s systems and structure with in-depth knowledge of one system; secondly, by having the generalised ability to retrieve and process large data sets in order to extract meaningful patterns or relationships from these data; and thirdly, by being able to succinctly and clearly explain these data and their knowledge to health consumers and professional audiences.
