Description


The Bachelor of Biomedical Science program provides you with a comprehensive grasp of how the human body functions and prepares you for a satisfying career in the medical industry with a concentration on physiology, anatomy, and cell biology.


This degree can be utilized to launch a lucrative career in biomedical research or as a requirement for entry into postgraduate health programs like postgraduate medicine. Also, you will gain a firm foundation in the medical sciences as well as advanced laboratory skills through hands-on experimentation and online interactive learning.


Besides that, the new curriculum offers a top-notch syllabus that promotes critical thinking and active learning through inquiry-based team-based learning, a strategy that creates gifted, knowledgeable, and lifelong learners. Your cognitive, analytical, organizational, interpersonal, and personal skills will also advance.


Here, you will also gain a comprehensive understanding of how the body works on all levels, from the molecular to the physiological. Students will have a deeper understanding of human biological science and use it to analyze the cellular, molecular, and systemic causes, signs, and potential therapies of disease. Principal research areas include:

  • Physiology

  • Anatomy

  • Biochemistry

  • Cell biology

  • Medical microbiology

  • Immunology

  • Molecular biology

  • Human genetics.

  1. Critically examine biological influences on sickness, happiness, and health and characterize their regional and global manifestations;

  1. Critically analyze original biomedical research material, map scientific experimentation, and employ relevant statistical approaches;

  1. Assess health and illness utilizing physiology, anatomy, molecular cell biology, and applied research;

  1. Research and give recommendations for responses to present, emerging, and future biomedical science challenges; evaluate medical interventions and therapies.

  1. Apply biomedical research theory to real-world situations in cutting-edge labs and workplaces;

  1. Conceptually exemplify the core values of professionalism and ethics in the field of biomedical science;

  1. Clear and analytically convey complicated biomedical science concepts to professional and lay audiences, including colleagues, research teams, supervisors, the community, and commercial partners.


Career Opportunities

After finishing this course, you will be prepared to work in the biomedical field locally and abroad or pursue postgraduate study. You will have developed the critical-thinking, communication, and lab-work abilities required of professionals in both clinical practice and biomedical science research.

On the other hand, a biomedical science degree is a precondition for postgraduate medicine (pending completion of prerequisites) and a gateway to other allied health degrees, such as physiotherapy, dentistry, or osteopathy.


Also, you will work in a profession, including:

  • Medical researcher

  • Scientific journalist

  • Medical laboratory scientist

  • Science laboratory specialist
