The Master of Biotechnology (Biomedical Science) is an innovative two-year postgraduate program of 48 units.
The curriculum is based on the clear convergence and rapid development of technology platforms in biotechnology, and the maturing of the sector to span discovery, research and development activities.
The program has an experimental focus and exposes students to individual technology platforms as well as developing competitive laboratory and research skills. Students will also be exposed to the many interlinked issues in contemporary biotechnology research; translation and development including compliance and regulatory issues; high throughput screening; project management, team skill development and exploitation.
Specialist biotechnology course content will focus on biomedical research and applications.
Biotechnology is one of the fastest growing global industries, helping to develop better methods of diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of diseases. There are very strong career opportunities for graduates, particularly those who possess strong laboratory skills combined with an understanding of research and product development.

In Australia each institution has its own application procedures and admission requirements so il would be better to contact your chosen university for an application form. To study here you'll need to apply for both admission to an institution and also for a student visa from the Australian Government so it's necessery to carefully check student visa information on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
Entry requirements can include: the academic requirements, evidence of funds to support your study and overseas student health cover. The academic requirements you need to study in Australia depend on the level of education you want to study. Indeed, in some cases, you may need to present your results of an English language test.
You can choose up to six courses in your application. Each university you've applied to consider your application separately. This means that you may receive an offer from each course that you include in your application.
