Bachelor of Biomedical Science

Bond University

The Bachelor of Biomedical Science is a 2-year accelerated degree which provides students with the ideal undergraduate foundation for a career in the health sciences. The program develops students knowledge in the molecular, cellular, anatomical and physiological processes of the human body and prepares them for graduate entry programs such as medicine and the allied health professions. The program will develop student knowledge and laboratory skills across a range of disciplines including anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, pharmacology, chemistry, biochemistry, cell biology, genetics and microbiology. Extensive laboratory training from the first semester, as well as case studies and problem-solving techniques are applied within a variety of clinical, research and allied health care settings. The program focuses on real world learning, where students will gain exceptional, high-quality practical experience in our health science laboratories. Students will be able to develop and master technical scientific and research skills using some of the latest research equipment, from the very first semester. Due to Bond University's small class sizes, students will be able to enjoy extensive use of this equipment and will be able to use the facilities outside of scheduled class times to further develop and refine their practical skills. The laboratories have dedicated laboratory staff to provide support and optimise student learning experience. An innovative feature of the program is the application of problem-based learning in the curriculum, a popular feature in medical programs which creates an engaging student learning experience to increase analytical reasoning and critical thinking skills.

Located on Queensland’s Gold Coast, between the picturesque mountains of the hinterland and some of Australia’s best beaches, the campus is set on a 50-hectare site just an hour’s drive from Brisbane. It features a range of recreational facilities, a lake and iconic buildings, which include on-campus student residences. The university’s practical learning facilities are equally impressive and have been designed to prepare students for the workplace. Students have access to teaching areas such as film and television studios, a psychology clinic, a legal skills centre modelled on the High Court of Australia, industry-standard financial trading facilities, various science laboratories, and clinical skills rooms with hospital-standard equipment for students of health science and medicine disciplines. 

Bond’s undergraduate courses are offered through the Bond Business School, the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine, the Faculty of Law, and the Faculty of Society and Design. Each faculty offers single and combined degrees covering a broad range of disciplines and specialties, including interesting pairings such as law with actuarial science, biomedical science or commerce. The university’s undergraduate courses include a compulsory core curriculum, comprising four areas: Critical Thinking and Communication, Leadership and Team Dynamics, Ethical Thought and Action, and Beyond Bond: Professional Development and Community Engagement.

As a private university, Bond charges full fees for its courses. It is also a not-for-profit organisation, which means that 100 per cent of the tuition fees are reinvested into the university. Domestic students may defer their tuition fees through the federal government’s FEE-HELP loan scheme. 

Bond emphasises globally focused and industry-specific course content and makes internships available across a number of disciplines, both in Australia and overseas. The university has developed industry relationships through graduate placements, research partnerships and its scholarships, and also encourages global mobility among students.
