Other things to know

There's more to University than lectures and classes. It's important to ensure you maintain an effective work/life balance and start thinking about your graduate options early.

Orientation is an important and exciting opportunity to connect with new students, learn more about the Bachelor of Biomedicine and find out about all the events and activities on campus.

Orientation will start with a welcome from the Head of School and a BBQ hosted by the Biomedicine Students' Society on Tuesday 23 February. You’ll then attend sessions to get to know more about the majors and breadth options available in the Bachelor of Biomedicine, look into planning your future and explore all the wonderful opportunities available through the University. You’ll also get access to assistance with planning your study and completing your enrolment, and you’ll connect with the University of Melbourne Student Union (UMSU) to discover all the student clubs and activities available on campus throughout the year.

For more information, go to the Orientation website.

The Biomedicine Student Society (BSS) will be an integral part of your time as Bachelor of Biomedicine student. They provide advocacy and academic support across your degree, as well as a number of social activities throughout the year. Their first event of the year is the Biomed Camp which is open to all new first-year students.

There are a range of other MDHS-affiliated student groups you might be interested in getting to know, including the Interprofessional Education and Practice Health Students Network (IPEP HSN) and the Outlook Rural Health Club.

It's never too early to start thinking about future study, and with such a broad range of health-related careers available to you at the conclusion of your undergraduate degree it's important to have a plan in place when selecting your subjects.
