Here are a few undergraduate courses for you to consider:
Bachelor of Biomedical Science
Biomedical scientists study how the body works, investigate how disease or injury interferes with normal function, and develop new treatment strategies that help restore function.
Skilled in using a variety of cutting-edge technologies, biomedical scientists have been responsible for major health advances including the development of vaccines, antibiotics and stem cell therapies.
Within this course, students will have a high degree of course flexibility with the option to select a major and two minor areas of study that align with their interests, and prepare them for areas of emerging priority and employment.
The course has very large practical focus; students will be in the laboratory from week one and working on real biomedical and scientific problems throughout the course.
Students may also complete studies in complementary areas from across the university, including:
- Behavioural Science
- Nutrition and Physical Activity
- Criminology and Policing
- Indigenous Knowledges
Bachelor of Business (Public Relations)
Public relations has evolved substantially over the past few years, but its main objective has remained the same: to foster good relations with key organisational stakeholders and protect, repair, and maintain organisational reputations.
If you're looking to become a public relations expert with industry-ready skills and the experience that employers are looking for, consider studying QUT's public relations major.
This course will teach you traditional PR skills such as crisis communication management and stakeholder engagement, as well as in-demand skills for the modern PR practitioner including knowing how to counter misinformation and address distrust.
This Public Relations course is co-designed with national and international industry experts to ensure you learn industry-relevant and up-to-date information and practices.
