Study Plan Templates

These templates have been put together to assist Biomedicine students in planning their subject choices throughout their course journey.

Study plans have been pre-populated with the Biomedicine Core subjects, with room available for you to add your subject choices in for major subjects, major requisites, science selectives and breadth subjects.

Course Requirements:

  • All students are required to choose a prescribed major sequence of four level 3 subjects. Some majors require level 1 or 2 prerequisite subjects to be able to complete the level 3 major subjects.
  • All students must complete 4-6 breadth subjects, only three of these can be at level 1.

For the full list of course requirements and subject options please refer to the University Handbook.

Standard Pathway - for students interested in completing a major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Cell and Developmental Biology, Genetics, Human Nutrition, Human Structure and Function, Immunology, Microbiology and Immunology, Neuroscience, Pathology, Pharmacology or Physiology. Some of these majors do require Level 2 prerequisite subjects to be completed in addition to the Biomedicine Core subjects (see table below).

Start Year Intake

Mid Year Intake

Bioengineering Pathway - for students interested in completing a major in Bioengineering Systems. Choosing this pathway does not lock you into this major. However you will not be able to complete the required prerequisite sequence within your course unless you commence this pathway in your first semester.

Start Year Intake

Mid Year Intake

Psychology Pathway - for students interested in completing the APAC (Australian Psychology Accreditation Council) Accredited Psychology major. This major is the first step towards registration as a practicing psychologist, and is the recommended pathway for a career as a research psychologist. Choosing this pathway does not lock you into this major. However you will not be able to complete the required prerequisite sequence within your course unless you commence this pathway in your first semester.
