Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Biomedical Science

Monash University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00008C

This program will give students the knowledge and skills of the applied aspects of biomedical science and the more theoretical focus, available from the science course. It will set students on their way to making a difference to people's lives. This course leads to two separate degrees: the Bachelor of Science, and the Bachelor of Biomedical Science. Students will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in their chosen work. As both science and biomedical science graduates are highly employable, this double degree course will increase their career prospects. Students will be well prepared to work in the healthcare and medical-related industries, as well as areas that require fundamental science knowledge and skills. Employment opportunities exist in pharmaceutical industries, research institutes, industry development and product technology, where highly skilled, critical thinkers are valued. Other employment possibilities include hospitals and medical industries, the government sector and health communications and promotion.
