This course is delivered full-time in face-to-face mode supported by blended learning activities (including online).
Learning environments include lectures, tutorials, online delivery and individual and group work.
You will spend a high proportion of your studies undertaking project and field work, providing a real-world context and the opportunity to develop teamwork and time-management skills.
High-achieving students may undertake work-integrated learning (WIL) through an industry-based research project or optional work experience.
Previous projects and work experience have been undertaken at organisations such as The Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity, Murdoch Children's Research Institute, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Olivia Newton-John Cancer Centre, CSIRO, Seqirus, Burnet Institute, and AgriBio, to name a few.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
