Welcome to the world of medical sciences.

Little could be more special than advancing the scientific knowledge of the human body with the discovery of a new drug, identifying factors in disease, or devising techniques to improve diagnosis and treatment.

Built on a strong foundation in medical research, the School of Medical Sciences provides a stimulating environment for undergraduate and postgraduate students embarking on careers in the medical sciences.

School of Medical Sciences graduates are highly sought-after as analysts, health promotion officers, protocol and process developers, regulatory compliance officers, scientific/medical writers or communication liaisons officers, product representatives/educators, and industrial/research lab technicians.

Undertaking postgraduate research can enable significant contributions toward the understanding and development of novel treatments and therapeutic interventions in a diverse array of disciplines.

Outside of bench-work research, graduates are well-positioned to develop a postgraduate specialisation in areas such as forensic science, clinical trials design and management and health leadership. Additionally, graduates will be well-primed for clinical specialisations including audiology, speech and language therapy, dietetics and medical imaging. The options are many and varied.
