Bachelor of Bionanotechnology (Honours)

University of Wollongong

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00102E

Bionanotechnology is an emerging field that combines principles from biology, physics, chemistry, and mathematics to understand and control biological processes at the molecular level. A Bachelor of Bionanotechnology (Honours) will place students in a unique position to undertake an exciting, interdisciplinary career in biotech industry, the pharmaceutical industry, academic biomedical research, government policy, patent law, and many other fields.

Structure

4 years full-time or part-time equivalent. This degree will give students the knowledge and concepts associated with bionanotechnology, knowledge of the principles from biology, physics, chemistry, and mathematics associated with the understanding and control of biological processes at the molecular level. In the final year, students will undertake a substantial piece of supervised research, together with other required seminar and/or coursework. An Honours (Dean's Scholar) program is also available.

Standard entry requirements

DOMESTIC STUDENTS - ATAR-BASED ADMISSION OPTIONS Guaranteed entry selection ranks: Entry to this course can be gained with: Minimum ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) International Baccalaureate (IB) Interstate equivalent (such as the Victorian ENTER or Queensland OP) Results in an overseas qualification deemed equivalent to Australian year 12. The minimum score for guaranteed entry (or for consideration if this course has limited places) is an ATAR-Selection Rank of 85 or an IB of 31. This includes the effect of adjustment factors. Adjustment factors, such as the subjects you are studying, the area in which you live or equity and access schemes, are taken into consideration and these will be combined with your ATAR to adjust your selection rank and make it higher than your ATAR. These adjustments used to be called bonus points. ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE AND RECOMMENDED STUDIES The University assumes students will have studied Biology and Mathematics or Chemistry and Mathematics. Students who have not completed Biology in the HSC are strongly recommended to enrol in bridging courses offered in February each year. Students without at least Mathematics (Band 4) are required to pass an approved mathematics subject during their degree. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Applicants need to have achieved the required score in a qualification equivalent to the completion of 13 years of schooling in Australia. In order to succeed in the students chosen course, it is assumed they have completed relevant subjects in your senior high school studies or other relevant qualifications. This is particularly important for degrees which have a strong basis in Mathematics or Science.

Study pathways

If applicants can demonstrate they have met the learning outcomes for UOW subjects through prior learning, such as previous tertiary or TAFE qualifications, they may be eligible for credit towards their degree. Where relevant to the UOW degree, specified credit may be given for specific subject(s); where not relevant to the degree, unspecified credit may be awarded.
