Overview

Broaden your career prospects by studying Advanced Science and Computer Science together. The Advanced Science degree differs from the Bachelor of Science with the inclusion of advanced-level courses, an Honours year and options tailored to your aptitude and interests. In addition to foundation subjects such as biology, chemistry, physics and maths, you have access to more than 25 advanced fields of science, including advanced physical oceanography, archaeology palaeoenvironments, climate dynamics and marine and coastal science. During your studies, you will develop the critical and analytical thinking needed for the successful completion of the research-based Honours year.

In the Computer Science component, you will study the design, construction and uses of computer systems. There are more than seven Computer Science majors to choose from, including artificial intelligence, database systems, e-commerce, embedded systems, networks, programming languages and security.

How to apply

Applications for undergraduate study from domestic students (Australian citizens, permanent residents and New Zealand citizens) are processed by the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).

Visit the ‘Apply’ section of the UAC website and you can nominate up to five degrees in order of preference, with the first being your most desired degree and university.

On-time applications for admission usually close at the end of September each year for Term 1 admission. Late applications can be submitted, but a late fee will apply.

For study starting in Term 1, the majority of offers are made in December and January.

Visit the UAC website for key dates for admission outside of Term 1.
