To ensure continuous improvement of the BCA program, an external program review was conducted in 2019. The review produced a set of recommendations outlining how the program could be further developed and adapted to respond to the broadening demands of biostatistics in the workplace; be it in government, industry or academia. These recommendations formed the basis of a restructure of the BCA Masters and Graduate Diploma in Biostatistics.

The new structure reduces the number of core (compulsory) units, allowing greater flexibility in the choices of elective units. Additionally, students will be able to choose up to 2 elective units for the Masters degree (and 1 for Graduate Diploma) from outside the list of BCA electives.

We are excited to introduce these changes; to offer a program that aligns with changing student needs and enables more choice within the program to suit particular and varying interests.

The BCA acknowledges we live and work on the ancestral lands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, who have for thousands of generations exchanged knowledge for the benefit of all. We pay our respects to those who have cared and continue to care for Country.
