The Master of Science in Quantitative Biology and Bioinformatics is a 2 year full-time (or equivalent part-time) degree that provides students with experience in the use of methods and tools to organise and analyse biological data, statistically, mathematically and computationally. The course caters to a range of students including (1) students who have come from an undergraduate biological degree, by providing the appropriate mathematical and programming skills; (2) to students with a more quantitative undergraduate background, by providing the necessary background in biology and biological data and analyses. Students also have the opportunity to learn about, and apply, techniques in client engagement and the real-world practice of consulting.


A minimum of 24 units must come from completion of 8000-level courses.
