About this course

This degree is being phased out. No new enrolments will be permitted from 2018. Prospective students may wish to consider the Bachelor of Biomedicine. The course is designed to provide a foundation year in science (with a focus on biology and chemistry), a choice of biomedical subjects in second year (biochemistry, genetics, human anatomy, human physiology, microbiology) and a specialised course in biomedical science in third year. As a guide, useful electives for those aiming at graduate entry to medicine are, in the first year, a selection of MIC1IEP (Infections and Epidemics), PSY1BNA (Introduction to Behavioural Neuroscience 1A), PSY1BNB (Introduction to Behavioural Neuroscience 1B), PHY1LS (Physics for Life Sciences ) and STA1LS (Statistics for Life Sciences), and in the second year 75 credit points from human physiology, human anatomy, genetics or microbiology. For those considering a career in medical biotechnology, useful second year electives include chemistry, genetics and microbiology. Students should be careful in selecting second-year subjects to ensure that the appropriate prerequisites have been met for the intended program of study at the third year and at Honours level.
