Applied Medical Science

Honours

Honours in Applied Medical Science is embedded within the Bachelor of Advanced Studies. Students will be part of world leading medical research within the School of Medical Sciences. The one-year program includes a 36-credit point research project giving students access to the latest biomedical technologies, whilst two 6-credit point coursework units will aid in the development of fundamental research and communication skills. To view a full list of projects please visit our online project database.

To be eligible the student must meet the requirements outlined in the resolutions and have completed any major within the School of Medical Sciences that is relevant to the project.

The student will need to find a suitable supervisor and complete the expression of interest form (pdf, 120KB).
