A stand out feature of the Bachelor of Biotechnology is the 10-week full-time industrial placement completed in your final year. This is the longest placement available to students studying biotechnology in Australia. It allows you to apply what you have learnt to a biotechnology environment and broadens your experience in preparation for your future.
In the third year of the degree you will also have the opportunity to spend a whole week at a time in laboratory training. These intense laboratory courses feature hands-on learning and teamwork activities that will help prepare you for the workplace.
Bachelor of Biotechnology students are eligible to enrol in International Study where you can complete an international placement. International study opportunities help you expand the theoretical knowledge and skills developed throughout your degree and apply them in an external and international context.
