There is so much more to improve. The course lacks direction and hence limits career opportunities by lack of skill or industry awareness. The academics are fantastic and work with you to improve you understanding, however course structure and depth of content lets it down.

Great experience and exposure into the world of biomedical science. Very practical experience in the classroom. Teaching was relevant, informative and useful. Teaching personalisation and connection with students was limited. would prefer a deeper and enriching experience with the teaching staff to become more personal (a us vs. you and me approach).

Student review
Could have improvement of how actual working labs are more hands on experience, western Sydney do not do any type of placement in the medical field which they should have as a course as the actual job is very different to the slow paced practical labs, and that classes should involve basic and extense things in example how to make agar and set it all the way through to culturing multiple plates.
