Bachelor of Biomedical Science

Bond University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00017B

The Bachelor of Biomedical Science is a 2-year accelerated degree which provides students with the ideal undergraduate foundation for a career in a range of areas including Health Sciences, Laboratory, Medicine and Allied health. 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.

Further information

Bond University provides staff throughout Australia to assist students in completing their application. Students required to undertake bridging subjects in one or both disciplines (for example Introduction to Chemistry and/or Elementary Maths) would usually do so in their first semester, however, completion of this program will take longer than six semesters. Alternately, students may elect to complete an equivalent Chemistry unit at any recognised Australian tertiary institution prior to entry. Applicants who do not receive an offer may apply for entry into the Bachelor of Health Sciences and transfer after the satisfactory completion of 1-2 semesters.
