Employees with science qualifications are in demand in the jobs market, particularly if they also have good interpersonal skills and some workplace experience.

It provides a broad base of subject knowledge and skills appropriate to occupations such as biomedical research, diagnostic services, health promotion, health and safety, health therapy, and health services administration and management.
