What will I learn?

Are you fascinated by how our bodies function, what keeps us healthy and what causes disease? Or maybe why are humans so different, yet also so much the same? The Bachelor of Biomedical Science embraces these questions as you explore the human body all the way to the cellular level.

You'll learn the structure and function of the body, understand the factors that help characterise disease, and develop analytical skills that may one day arm your fight against it.
