The Melbourne curriculum
Your Melbourne experience is yours to shape. If you’re interested in the medical field, you can start with our undergraduate (bachelors) degrees in biomedicine or science. This is an opportunity to explore your interests and study a variety of topics. It allows you to enhance your university experience and career options by giving you professional expertise from a range of disciplines. As an introduction to healthcare, you can study health subjects in your undergraduate degree through the breadth program.
Once you’ve completed your undergraduate degree, you can progress to specialised graduate study in health.

You may choose to take a single subject in health; or take a sequence of three or more subjects called a breadth track. This can help you develop knowledge and skills relevant to topics like drugs that shape society or global health, security and sustainability.

Meet Bachelor of Biomedicine (Cell and Developmental) student, Georgia Carney
“I worked in a lab at the Florey Institute with a team investigating the use of stem cell therapy for Parkinson’s Disease. I am curious about stem cells and was eager to develop a tangible understanding of how science works," says Georgia.
"This was a part of my 'Biomedical Research Project,' which is an elective you can take in your third year at Melbourne. It was an awesome opportunity to work in a lab and meet other researchers and see what their day-to-day life is like.”
Meet Bachelor of Oral Health student, Isabella Hanlon
“I chose to study a Bachelor of Oral Health as I was interested in working in a profession that enabled me to help people improve their health. Some of my most memorable, and useful, experiences studying at Melbourne have been the many opportunities for frequent observations and field trips, as well as the chance to undertake a research project of our choice. My research project has led me through a wonderful experience in Nepal promoting and implementing oral health initiatives to a community.”
