Bachelor of Medical Mathematics

University of Wollongong

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

The Bachelor of Medical Mathematics was created by UOW in response to the needs identified by the medical and health sectors. The rapid development of medical technology and treatments has created a niche sector which relies on the skill sets of mathematicians and statisticians. Mathematical and statistical modelling and analysis is the key to future breakthroughs in areas including the understanding of biological systems, the treatment of diseases, drug development, and targeted clinical trials. This is because mathematics and statistics enable us to design meaningful yet streamlined experiments, find structure in data, and construct models that help to predict, and therefore control, future outcomes. This degree provides the tools and develops the skills required for advanced modelling and analysis in the medical and health sciences sector. The program includes a combination of mathematics, statistics, chemistry, biosciences, population health, medical imaging, physiology and psychology. You will gain the skills needed to pursue careers in mathematics, statistics, medical research and industry, in areas such as genetics, epidemiology, medical imaging, drug delivery, neurophysiology, and pharmacokinetics.

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. Find out more about UOW adjustment factors here: https://www.uow.edu.au/future/school/apply/index.html ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE AND RECOMMENDED STUDIES The University assumes students will have studied any 2 units of English. 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 your chosen course, it is assumed you 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.
