I'm not a student at ACU, but I'd assume that biomed curricula should be quite similar despite the different institutions. I personally loved the biochem/molecular bio and physiology units since they're understanding-based and really similar to my pride and joy, which are my chem electives. I didn't really like my anatomy or neurobio unit (yes anatomy units involve looking at dead bodies), since anatomy wasn't organised well and neurobio was way too much content for a 1st year unit. Poor organisation was also the reason I didn't really enjoy biostats/epi and biophysics. I have written some unit reviews on Monash subject reviews thread here on AN if you want some insights into how biomed degrees might be run, but they're not relevant to ACU biomed.

I have written a tips post for biomedders and chem students before, I'll link it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Monash/comments/ptrnpy/bms_chm_survival_guide_caveats_and_strats/
