Master of Biomedical Science
|Study method||Full-time or part-time|
|Study mode||On-campus or mixed on- and off-campus|
|Duration||2 years full-time or part-time equivalent|
This newly redesigned course allows you to focus on molecular biotechnology or infectious diseases and microbiology, or on a blend of the two fields, through choice of optional units.
The course includes laboratory classes that can develop your research capabilities and technical skills, such as DNA cloning and sequencing. An advanced laboratory unit and/or individual research projects can also hone your laboratory skills for a professional research environment. Your practical work may also include real-life situations involved experimental design, technique selection and solving practical problems in the laboratory.
Alternatively, project units can be used for biological and medical research at a theoretical level, fostering critical analysis of scientific literature and the formulation of novel hypotheses and research proposals.
You will graduate with the knowledge and practical skills required to work at an advanced level in the biomedical sector and other biotechnology related industries.
Entry requirements for Australian and New Zealand students
