Bio-nanotechnology is an emerging field that combines principles from biology, physics, chemistry, and mathematics to understand and control biological processes at the molecular level.
Using bio-nano-technological approaches, revolutionary advances are being made in:
The biomedical sciences, varying from the visualization and manipulation of individual molecules, the use of nano-particles to deliver drugs to specific sites in the body and the development of nano-fabricated architecture to read out the sequence of DNA.
A Bachelor of Bio-nanotechnology (Honours) will place you in a unique position to undertake an exciting, interdisciplinary career in biotech industry, pharmaceutical industry, academic biomedical research, government policy, patent law, and many other fields.
This degree will give you the knowledge and concepts associated with bio-nanotechnology, knowledge of the principles from biology, physics, chemistry, and mathematics associated with the understanding and control of biological processes at the molecular level.
In the final year, you will undertake a substantial piece of supervised research, together with other required seminar and/or course work.

* for students with 6.0 overall, but 5.5 in either reading or writing
# for students with 5.5 overall, but less than 5.0 in reading or writing
Assumed Knowledge: Biology and Mathematics or Chemistry and Mathematics
Applicants need to have achieved the required score in a qualification equivalent to the completion of 13 years of schooling in Australia.
In order to succeed in your chosen course, it is assumed you have completed relevant subjects in your senior high school studies or other relevant qualifications.
This is particularly important for degrees which have a strong basis in Mathematics or Science.
Foundation Studies is a university preparation course specifically designed for international students who have not completed secondary schooling, or who have not met the direct entry requirements for a UOW Bachelor degree.
The course involves a stream of subjects relevant to your chosen UOW degree. When you enrol in the program, you will be allocated to a relevant stream of study.
You will develop study skills and habits, including time management, essay writing, group work and presentation skills; and become familiar with the academic standards and expectations at university.
Successful completion of Foundation Studies provides guaranteed entry to most UOW undergraduate Bachelor degrees.
