Biomedicine Graduate Pathways

The Bachelor of Biomedicine provides a supportive environment which allows students to realise their potential and work towards their long term goals, and graduates from this degree have a high rate of success in gaining entry to a diverse range of competitive postgraduate courses.

What do our students do after graduating?

No matter what your career aspirations, the University of Melbourne remains number six in the world and number one nationally for graduate employability*.

After completing a Bachelor of Biomedicine, you can gain employment in a diverse range of careers or begin a graduate degree to work towards further specialist qualifications.

While about one third of Melbourne Biomedicine graduates are selected into the Doctor of Medicine (MD) program at the University of Melbourne – representing over half the annual domestic intake for the MD – even more of our graduates collectively choose other graduate pathways including the Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS), Doctor of Physiotherapy (DPT) and Doctor of Optometry (OD).

Plus, demand is rising for biotechnologists, forensic scientists, neuroscientists, pharmaceutical scientists and microbiologists.

Be internationally recognised and set yourself apart from those who study a traditional Australian single or double degree. Explore the graduate pathways available at Melbourne once you complete your Bachelor of Biomedicine.
