The course was interesting and of incredibly high standards, but after some time I found that it was not the career for me. I would highly recommend RMIT for any studies, they even allowed me to transfer my scholarship from my first degree across to my second.

I overall had a positive experience whilst studying the Bachelor of Biomedical Science. The coursework I encountered in the program was detailed and allowed me to explore my interests in microbiology and cell biology. I would recommend anyone who is interested in the field of medical science to have a look into this course as you will be provided with both knowledge and practical experience to help you succeed in your career.

Student review
The course was good in itself, however, if you intend to score high (distinction average or more) it requires a lot of work as there is a huge workload. It is difficult to balance everyday life with uni work and it was quite stressful, however, RMIT had really good resources especially in the anatomy department.
