The experience


Can you see yourself studying a Bachelor of Biomedicine in one of the world’s most highly concentrated precincts of biomedical research?

The School of Biomedical Sciences, as part of our renowned Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, is at the University’s Parkville campus.

Here, a close-knit community of inspiring, high-achievers from around the world are on a path to becoming the next generation of biomedical researchers and healthcare professionals.

Study Abroad and Exchange

As a Biomedicine student, you will be encouraged to complete some of your study abroad through the Exchange or Study Abroad programs. You could spend a full semester at a partner university, or choose do a single subject as a summer or winter intensive. The opportunities for academic, cultural and personal growth are invaluable and serve to increase your understanding of the global nature of health care and biomedical research.

Access to unprecedented resources

Additionally, as a Biomedicine student you will have access to the wealth of cultural collections that exist in our three Museums and which will directly input your teaching in Anatomy and Pathology as well as supplement your learning experience in relation to Dentistry and Medical History. Our three Museums are the Medical History Museum, The Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology and the Henry Forman Atkinson Dental Museum.

Student Clubs and Societies

The Biomedicine Student’s Society (BSS) is amongst the most active and inclusive of university student groups. The strong cohort framework of the degree (remember, you do half of your subjects together) allows the BSS to provide academic and social programs that are tailored to the journey you will share with your peers.

Embedded between a residential ‘Welcome Camp’ and an Annual Biomedicine Ball (which raised $25,000 for Muscular Dystrophy Australia last year) are a series of programs from peer-group tutorials, and coal-face advice about subjects and majors from senior students. As you will want to do well with GAMSAT and graduate course interviews, study groups and practice sessions are available.
