Overview

Bachelor of Science (BSc) specialising in Biomedical Science

If you have a mind for science and you’re keen to keep your options open, then the BSc (Bachelor of Science) is the degree for you. With many undergraduate majors in a wide range of subject areas, the BSc will allow you to incorporate different areas of interest and expertise. 

As well as strongly emphasising transferable skills to improve your employment opportunities, this programme will expose you to cutting-edge technologies and provide a gateway to independent research. 

Throughout your undergraduate degree you’ll be taught by knowledgeable scientists, many of whom are major contributors in their field.

What can you study in Biomedical Science?

You can study Biomedical Science as a specialisation in the Bachelor of Science (BSc).

If you’re a very able student with a passion for understanding the scientific basis of health and disease in humans and animals, then Biomedical Science could be the specialisation for you.

This challenging and immensely rewarding specialisation will deliver rigorous scientific training in a range of disciplines, allowing you to gain unique insights into this important and rapidly developing area of modern research.

The specialisation is highly prescriptive, and is one of only two ways in which you can be selected for Medicine (MBChB) at the end of your first year. The first year of the Biomedical Science specialisation includes compulsory courses that all students must take. 

However, as you progress through your second and third years, you can opt to keep your specialisation general or you can choose one of the following pathways to focus your studies:

  • Anatomical Imaging Science
  • Cancer Biology and Therapeutics
  • Cardiovascular Biology
  • Cellular and Molecular Biomedicine
  • Genetics
  • Infection and Immunity
  • Neuroscience
  • Nutrition and Metabolism
  • Reproduction and Development

Biomedical Science is jointly taught by the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences.
