“I chose Biomedical Science because it’s a very good preparatory course. Studying Biomedical Science leads to many varied pathways, such as into industry or academia, but my preferred choice would be to go into the Doctor of Medicine program at UQ.”

“The lecturers on my course bring in a lot of information about industry events, where you get to meet scientists from different boards in Queensland. You get to meet alumni as well so you know where you’re going to go from finishing your degree.”
