Overview

Broaden your career opportunities by studying Advanced Science and Engineering 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 also have access to more than 25 advanced fields of 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 Engineering degree you will have the opportunity to apply yourself to engineering design and enquiry projects, professional engineering practice, engineering and technical management, and research. Choose from a wide range of specialisations, from traditional disciplines such as Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering, through to those tailored to modern challenges, such as Renewable Energy Engineering.

1. 2020 Lowest Selection Rank

The 2020 Lowest Selection Rank (LSR) is the adjusted rank (ATAR plus adjustment factors) you would have needed to gain entry to this degree in 2020.

2. 2021 Guaranteed Entry

Find more information on Guaranteed Entry here.

3. 2020 A levels

The 2020 A levels score is based on four Advanced Level (A2) subject. Entry scores are calculated from the best three or four A2 subjects (excluding repeated subjects) using the following values: A*=6, A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, E=1. At most one Applied A Level subject may be included in the best four subjects used to calculate the aggregate.

4. 2020 IB Diploma

The 2020 IB Diploma is an indication of the IB you would have needed to gain entry to this degree in 2020. It is to be used as a guide only.

5. 2020 Lowest ATAR

The 2020 Lowest ATAR is the lowest ATAR (before adjustment factors were applied) to which an offer was made. Where <5 is listed, this indicates that less than 5 ATAR-based offers were made and so the score has not been published. N/A indicates no offers were made on the basis of ATAR.

How to apply

Applications for undergraduate study from domestic students (Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents, Australian permanent humanitarian visa holders 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.
