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.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
