BBiomedSc majoring in Functional Human Biology

The Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences (BBiomedSc) degree provides students with a sound foundation in the scientific principles underpinning biomedical research and thus our current understanding of health and disease. A defining feature of this degree is its interdisciplinary nature with students able to select papers from multiple contributing Departments. The BBiomedSc is a springboard for advanced study and a diverse range of careers including research, health services, and professional programmes.

The BBiomedSc is a three-year programme that starts with a first year course, the Biomedical Sciences First Year (BSFY), followed by the BBiomedSc (2nd Year and Above) programme. The BSFY consists of six compulsory papers plus one further paper. The BBiomedSc (2nd Year and Above) requires that students undertake one of the following majors:

Applicants starting their University studies and interested in biomedical sciences should apply for the BSFY using the Apply Now button for the ‘Biomedical Sciences First Year’.
