Advice on how to plan your exchange within the Bachelor of Science
Optimal exchange dates: Year 2: Semester 1
Planning your exchange: The most flexible semester for exchange when undertaking a major in Pathology is Semester 1, Year 2. Students can opt to undertake an equivalent of BCMB20002 Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the host institution. Alternatively, students could select Science Electives/Breadth subjects, but must ensure they complete BCMB20002 Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Semester 2 upon their return to UoM.
The Faculty of Science has mapped several subject’s equivalent to BCMB20002 Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
Things to consider: For students considering Pathology (Anatomy Focus), ANAT20006 Principles of Human Structure is a recommended subject. It can be taken in Semester 2 upon return from exchange but, as this is a quota restricted subject, students should ensure they confirm their enrolment. Students can also attempt to find an equivalent subject at the host institution.
