  • Objectives
    Biomedical Science is the study of the human body, its structure and function in health and disease. The Bachelor of Biomedical Science degree is a structured program that develops student knowledge in the molecular, cellular, anatomical and physiological processes of the human body. There is a strong emphasis on developing scientific communication skills, plus technical skills, including working with state of the art scientific equipment. Extensive laboratory training and problem solving with a case study approach to teaching, emphasise the applications of Biomedical Science within a variety of clinical, research and allied healthcare settings.
  • Practical experience
    Work Experience & Internships Internships are available with permission from the faculty. This intensely practical professional development approach fosters graduates who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact in the workplace. Eligible students may also participate in the Bond University Smart State Undergraduate Internships Program.
  • Entry requirements
    Year 12 results or equivalent results that include English, Maths B and either Chemistry or Physics. Students without year 12 Chemistry maybe required to complete a bridging Chemistry subject. International applicants also need to satisfy English Language Requirements.

    Career Outcomes

    The broad scope of the Biomedical Science degree ideally positions graduates wishing to enter a wide range of professions involved in, or allied to, the healthcare industry. This includes employment in hospitals, health administration, the pharmaceutical, diagnostic, veterinary / animal health and medical devices industries and many other related services and will have the opportunity to complete. Graduates may pursue biomedical research opportunities within universities, government and non-government based research institutes. Graduates will also have the opportunity to complete research based Honours or PhD qualifications, or continue study into graduate programs in medicine, pharmacy, nutrition and dietetics, medical laboratory science, exercise, and rehabilitation.


    To increase the range of career outcomes available many students complete a dual degree or postgraduate study. Popular choices for Bachelor of Biomedical Science students include:

        * Bachelor of Biomedical Science / Bachelor of Health Sciences (Biomedical Science) with Honours (3 years full-time study)

        * Bachelor of Biomedical Science / Bachelor of Laws (4 years full-time study)
          Graduate outcomes include patent law professionals or biotechnology scientists


        * Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)
        * Graduate Certificate of Biomedical Sciences
        * Postgraduate Diploma of Biomedical Science


    We offer a range of scholarships to help students with the costs of tuition. All scholarships, including benefits and requirements are detailed in the Bond University Scholarship Program.
