    Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences

    If you’re into science, if you’re into helping people, if you want to further research in microbiology and immunology, definitely get into biomedical science. It’s awesome.

    Sophie McIntyre

    Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences

    I enjoyed the research experience in biomedicine so much that I pursued further immunology study through a Master of Philosophy. The abundance of practical laboratory experience was vital and the quality mentorship and guidance in the biomedical sciences degree certainly facilitated my success.

    JCU graduates have a really strong focus on the patient journey, probably because they have developed interpretation and analysis skills across multiple sciences. They are great at understanding the pathophysiology of the various chronic diseases that impact our patients.
