Student review
This is a difficult but intriguing course. Quite relative to a pathology lab. However jobs are scarce nowadays for anything other than a lab assistant/tech or casual/part time positions.

My degree was tough, very challenging but with plenty of support. I struggled at times, to fit in study with work and kids but had resources available from the uni to help out. 10/10 would recommend.

Student review
It was an excellent degree that has lead into postgraduate study in an exciting field of research. The lecturers were knowledgeable and genuinely tried to help you get the most out of the course. The course placements at leading institutions allowed you to not only see how your developing skills are used in the real world but let you use them.
