    The School of Biomedical Sciences

    The School of Biomedical Sciences provides students with an opportunity to engage in high quality learning experiences in the areas of clinical practice (paramedic), clinical science, health science and medical science. School staff are well known for both quality teaching and research, a combination that ensures students receive not only a quality education, but a connection to job opportunities in industry and commerce, the professions, and the public sector. Research programs are diverse, providing an exciting environment for graduate studies – where students are exposed to cutting-edge research in a range of disciplines. The School delivers courses across five CSU campuses at Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange, Port Macquarie and Wagga Wagga.

  • Academic expectations

    For each 8 point subject at CSU, students should normally expect to spend between 140-160 hours engaged in the specified learning and assessment activities (such as attending lectures or residential schools, assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, assignments or examinations). The student workload for some subjects may vary from these norms as a result of approved course design.

    Students will be assessed on the basis of completed assignments, examinations, workplace learning, or other methods as outlined in specific subject outlines.

    Where applicable, students are responsible for travel and accommodation costs involved in workplace learning experiences, or attending residential schools (distance education students).

    Expectations relating to academic, workplace learning, time and cost requirements for specific subjects are provided in the subject abstracts and in course materials.

    Throughout their studies, CSU students have a responsibility to continue to develop skills in English Language, literacy and numeracy as appropriate to their discipline. This ongoing development will enable students to effectively participate in their course and graduate as competent professionals.
