What do our health sciences students say?
Helen Ou, Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences
I enjoyed learning about areas relating to human health such as biochemistry, human structure and function, and disease.
In my units, I particularly enjoyed the hands-on practical component in Curtin’s laboratory facilities, where we had the opportunity to work with specialised equipment such as spectrophotometers and scientific microscopes; which I found very useful in helping to consolidate and gain a better understanding of the theory.
I would recommend this course to anyone interested in human health and disease.
Scott Bell, Bachelor of Psychology
Completing the Bachelor of Psychology course at Curtin University has been a life changing experience for me. As a mature-age student, I was quite nervous when starting this course, however the staff and overall culture of Curtin made me feel very welcome in a short space of time.
This course provides a solid foundation in the discipline of psychology. It has provided me with confidence to undertake further study and to begin my professional journey within the field.
Keiran Batavia (Bachelor of Pharmacy) (Hons)
Curtin is the perfect place to study pharmacy. I’ve had extensive training in compounding labs and sterile compounding, learning how to make and manufacture medications, IV bag infusions, ampoules and eye drops.
We undertake clinical placements at community pharmacies and hospitals, which fully prepares us for the workplace when we graduate.
