Great course that I enjoyed a lot. Loved the course work and practical work. Now that I have graduated I have basically no career outcomes until undertaking further study which is too expensive and not wanted.

Deakin University is one of the few universities in Melbourne to make sure that Biomedical and Science students undertake work placements to gain real-life experience. This has been very valuable to me as I received a whole new world view into what I wanted to achieve after my undergraduate. All of the examinable content was easy to access. There were no major surprises!

It is a stressful but rewarding course. You have to study long hours each day but the marks you receive for assessments are worth the hard work
