To be eligible to graduate with the Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science (Honours) students must complete the 30 core units (192 units of credit) and complete professional placement requirements.

Professional Placement
Prior to placement, each student must satisfy specific pre-clinical health, safety, security and licensing requirements, including a clear criminal record check, and must disclose any condition that may put themselves, or the public, at significant risk whilst on placement. Due to limited availability of placements, some block placements have start and/or end dates that fall outside standard term start and end dates. As placement availability is limited in each community, students may be placed at locations that are not of their choosing. Students will be required to complete the requisite number of professional placement hours. Students must prepare financially and personally to relocate for placements, and are responsible for any associated costs.

Residential School
There are residential schools in this course which students are required to attend. These are based in Rockhampton so students must prepare financially and personally to attend, and are responsible for any associated costs. Wherever possible, Residential Schools are scheduled back-to-back.
