Overview

Be part of a growing demand for graduates with training in the field of exercise and biomedical sciences. Victoria University's Bachelor of Science in Biomedical and Exercise Science is a dual disciplinary degree.

This course integrates biomedical science and exercise science into a compelling new area of study in the environments of physical activity, sport, and health research. This includes:

  • the fundamentals of anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology
  • biochemistry, biomechanics and kinesiology
  • psychology

  • how it is impacted by disease.

You will learn to apply theoretical knowledge and analytical techniques to a range of practical and clinical scenarios including learning in industry, workplace and community settings. You will also gain experience and develop a solid foundation in designing research methodologies, and performing analytical research by participating in active research as a team member.

Victoria University is equipped with new medical research facilities at Sunshine Hospital, and exercise and sport science facilities at our Footscray Park campus.
