2019 Open Day: School of Biomedical Sciences what's on

Join us on 18 August and step inside one of the University’s fastest growing Schools – right in the heart of the largest biomedical precinct in the southern hemisphere.

If you have a passion for biomedical sciences, medicine or professional health – or you know a budding student who does – you are in the right place.

On Sunday 18 August, the School invites prospective students, families, friends and the wider community to see inside our world-class facilities and hear from Bachelor of Biomedicine students about their experiences and career aspirations.

The Virtual Reality Learning Studio – as part of our Department of Physiology – will be open all day (Medical Building, Level 3), providing an opportunity to experience firsthand the largest room scale Virtual Reality teaching space in Australia.

“We have the opportunity not only to be part of the future of education, but to drive the future of education,” says studio founder Dr Sevigny, digital fellow for the School.

“Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, borderless collaboration, interactivity in either physical or virtual lecture theatres, podcasts enabling students to have a voice across any distance - these are all exciting tools to improve the way we learn and communicate.”

Open Day visitors will also learn about:

  • Course information for Bachelor of Biomedicine (Medical Building, Level 3), including current students who can tell you what student life is really like.
  • Information on our majors offered in the Bachelor or Biomedicine (Medical Building, Level 3) and the Bachelor of Science (Wilson Hall).
