This program focuses on the biomedical aspects of biology, including the normal and abnormal function of the human body. The emphasis is on modern biomedical knowledge and research approaches used to gain that knowledge. Students are taught by world-class biomedical researchers and experienced educators, and have the opportunity to pursue a research project as an introduction to modern biomedical research.


Students will start from a broad base in their first year that includes biology and chemistry. In their second year students begin to specialise with a focus on biochemistry, genetics, microbiology and immunology. Students choose two majors in their third year with at least one in biochemistry, genetics or microbiology and immunology. By the end of their studies students will have acquired broad knowledge of biomedical science and an in depth grounding in at least one core biomedical science discipline with a substantial research focus.
