Adelaide Biodesign participants are required to partake in the Australian eChallenge. Once registered for Adelaide Biodesign, our staff will assess your student status and either register you on your behalf or direct you to the appropriate enrollment page.

Adelaide Biodesign charges a flat $400 fee which covers the ten week biomedical entrepreneurship course, catering each week, clinical placements, professional mentoring, post-course support from Adelaide Enterprise and other exclusive experiences provided by our industry contacts.

In addition, Australian eChallenge charge students $250 and external participants $500 for their ten week entrepreneurship program.
Eligible University of Adelaide students can enroll in the eChallenge as an elective subject (utilising HECS-HELP – so no upfront payment) and HDRs are also eligible for up to 30 CaRST credits.

Your individual fee will be determined based on your student status and you will be invoiced upon acceptance of your application.
