As a student, you will benefit from our premier national status in biomedical science education and professional training of allied health professionals. The School has a rich legacy in the health sciences, and it continues to be at the forefront of innovation in teaching and learning through the introduction of modular biomedical degree programmes, and the introduction of new allied health professions programmes.
