Biomedical science graduates will acquire practical and analytical skills. They also have to be IT literate, to know how to use different software for special analyses. Another important ability would be the numerical skills; a biomedicine expert often uses mathematical and statistical means for research. Students will also develop important qualities like time management, project management and organisational skills. Biomedical degrees offer courses on topics such as tumour biology, genetics, epidemiology and biomedical research, immunology and pathology, biomathematics.

Career opportunities include areas that interact with medicine and health, such as engineering-based fields that solve biological and medical problems.
