Overview

Bachelors of Biomedical Science / Science - Microbiology (Major)

Get set to contribute to breakthroughs in the medical sciences and healthcare by combining interdisciplinary scientific knowledge and key practical skills with an in-depth understanding of biomedical science.

This four-year dual program offers you the opportunity to influence major scientific advancement through specialist knowledge in two widely applicable technical disciplines. You'll gain deep knowledge of biomedical science while enjoying the flexibility to select a speciality major under the science program.

For the science component, you'll learn about the scientific process through activities such as experimental design, hands-on experiments and computer programming, and you'll develop your critical thinking, communication and quantitative reasoning skills.

You can follow your interests and select a major from one of the broadest selections of science disciplines in Australia. Majors range from chemistry and computer science to mathematics and marine biology, and much more.

Your biomedical science studies incorporate extensive practical experience, including opportunities to work with researchers making the latest breakthroughs.

You'll study the human body at the molecular, cellular and whole-body levels, and cover biochemistry and cell biology, physiology, developmental biology, microbiology, pharmacology and neuroscience.

With two highly respected scientific programs, your skills and knowledge will be in high demand and you'll be ready to embark on an interesting and rewarding career across biomedicine and science.

Study a major in Marine Biology and apply key principles from ecology, zoology, botany and genetics to examine marine life and investigate their biological relationship to their natural environments.

Led by Australia's leading marine researchers, you will be exposed to a variety of marine habitats and environmental conditions. Gain extensive field work experience at UQ's Heron Island Research Station on the southern Great Barrier Reef and UQ's Moreton Bay Research Station on North Stradbroke Island.

The Institute of Continuing and TESOL Education (ICTE) offers English language courses that can help you meet UQ's English language requirements.

Package offers:

If you meet all the academic entry requirements for your preferred UQ program, but need help to meet the English language requirements, you may be eligible for a package offer.

A package offer includes:

  • an English language course at UQ's Institute of Continuing and TESOL Education (ICTE), and
  • a conditional offer of admission to a UQ program.

When you apply for your UQ program, indicate that you want to apply for a package offer. Don't apply directly to ICTE.

  • General English (GE) and English for Academic Purposes (EAP) – study for between 5 and 45 weeks. Take an approved English language test at ICTE at the end of the course to show you meet UQ's English language entry requirements.
