Intended learning outcomes
This honours program aims to extend and enhance the student’s education and intellectual development in biomedical science. The aim of our course is to provide students with first-rate skills that will either qualify admission into a Research Higher Degree or provide the necessary skills to pursue a successful career in one of the many science and technology industries available.
Specifically we will teach the students:
• To acquire the ability to perform literature searches, analyse it critically, and integrate it into the current state of knowledge in the field.
• To develop hypothesis, formulate aims to address the hypotheses, propose experiments and engage in discussion with other scientists.
• To acquire and gain experience in experimental techniques and statistical analyses.
• To acquire oral and written presentation skills to present original scientific data to an expert audience.
• To generate a body of original scientific results that will form part of a peer-reviewed, primary research publication
