Faculty of Science - Leading creativity and innovation in the sciences

Biomedical Science - Postgraduate options

In 2017 the University introduced three new postgraduate programmes in Biomedical Science administered by the Faculty of Medical and Health Science rather than the Faculty of Science. The reasoning behind this change is to more appropriately align the programmes with the faculty most closely associated with the teaching of courses and students’ research focus and interests. The content and requirements for these programmes will not change.

These new programmes replace the Biomedical Science specialisations in BSc(Hons), PGDipSci and MSc as follows:

Subject description


Biomedical Science is designed for very able students with an interest in emerging areas of medical science and its applications to improve human and animal health. It is currently the most rapidly developing area in basic biological science. The University of Auckland is acknowledged as a centre of excellence in this field, reflecting the high quality of biomedical research carried out between the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences and the Faculty of Science. The Biomedical Science programmes are co-taught between the two faculties, with lectures split between the City and Grafton campuses.
