    bachelor of medical laboratory science

    i first started medical laboratory science with a keen interest in the broad range of subjects offered. this interest only increased when i stepped into the lab. the instruments and facilities available at jcu match those of a real medical laboratory, this helped me go into my placements with confidence and experience.

    bachelor of medical laboratory science

    the lecturers, tutors and student mentors were nothing short of amazing; i honestly could not have graduated without their support. not only did they deliver the material, they went above and beyond; emailing me to see how i was travelling with the degree and taking the time to sit with me one on one if required.
