  1. *While many Australian institutions diversify their degree offerings, for example, offering a Bachelor of Science as well as a Bachelor of Biomedical Science and a Bachelor of Biotechnology, this is not true of all institutions, nor is this necessarily generalisable to institutions outside Australia. Choice of categories was based in part on the recognition that programs for which a student might obtain a discrete named degree in Australia might constitute a major or focus of a more generally-named degree elsewhere (e.g. a major in Biotechnology is found in some Bachelor of Science degrees). It should be noted that the Medicine degree category does not distinguish between graduate-entry and undergraduate programs.
  2. **Note that 4 courses were accounted for twice, for example, taught to Science and Pharmacy.
