    I loved the practical classes! Whether it was examining cadavers, dissecting mice, or discovering disease-causing bacteria from clinical samples - I found it all very engaging and exciting. I grew fond of all my lecturers. Their experiences, stories and personalities made all the difference. It made learning fun.

    I have always dreamt of becoming a research scientist in microbiology, and this degree is the key to reach my goal. My main focus has always been microorganisms and I get to work in PC2 labs which involves the efficient handling of microorganisms. I’ve had the most amazing lecturers and peers, as well.

    What I love about the Bachelor of Biomedicine is that students get hands-on experience in state-of-the-art laboratories from their very first year of study. Our students learn practical, broadly applicable skills, allowing them to transition into a variety of exciting research and health professions.
