Where will this take me?


A Master in Biomedical Science can open the door to working in a fast-growing sector and empower you to make a genuine contribution to society through advancements in health and technology. Biomedical research has significant professional applications, both domestically and internationally, and offers a variety of exciting career paths.

Innovative research opportunities

Biomedical research, including biotechnology, is a rapidly growing sector. The Master of Biomedical Science program will place you at the forefront of this evolution.

As a Master of Biomedical student, you will have access to some of Australia’s top research organisations given the University’s location in the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct and its affiliation with industry partners and institutions with a wealth of internationally renowned researchers. Graduates leave the program with invaluable industry contacts from these experiences.

Through your research project, you will be embedded in the organisation most applicable to your research. That means you will have the opportunity to work directly with organisations, such as:

  • St. Vincent’s Hospital
  • The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute
  • Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre
  • The Burnet Institute
  • Royal Melbourne Hospital
  • The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute.

The opportunity to tailor your research project to the existing needs of government or industry can pave the way for your future career from the outset of the program.

An active schedule of expert talks, workshops and symposiums will allow you to meet prominent local and international industry figures, expand your network, and make sure you graduate with a firm grasp of current issues faced in the industry.

The research and coursework components of the Master of Biomedical Science program can set the foundations for those wanting to undertake a biomedical PhD or further education in medicine, or other graduate professional health programs.

An internationally recognised qualification and accreditation

The Master in Biomedical Science is an internationally recognised qualification. While Australia maintains a prominent place in biomedical research, the opportunity to work overseas and engage with the international biomedical community is immensely valuable.
