Year Three of Program

In Semester 1 you must do Cellular Communication and in Semester 2 you must do Practical Biomedical Sciences.

You then need to select three courses for each of Semesters 1 and 2. We recommend that you take two of the following three courses:


Applied Biochemical Methods
Cardiovascular Biology
Head and Visceral Anatomy.
If you chose two of those three courses, your fourth course can be one of:
Medical Microbiology 1
General Pathology
Gene Technologies

We then recommend either two or all of:
Biomolecules and Cellular Regulation
Neuroscience
Biology of Tissue Growth and Repair
If you choose two of those courses the fourth can be one of the other three


Medical Microbiology 2
Integrative Pathology
Bioinformatics **

Student please note that although BIOL2034 - Bioinformatics does not appear in this enrolment program structure students are still able to enrol into the course via the Enrolment Online System by searching for class numbers:

2405 - Semester 1.

2363 - Semester 2.
