Overview

In this degree, the Bachelor of Science allows you to study a wide range of science subjects.

You are encouraged to choose a variety of courses in your first year, and later to choose from more than 20 major options.

This gives you time to become more familiar with the different areas of science and to explore possible majors.

The Computer Science component emphasises the basic principles behind computing tools, operating systems, compilers and translators, and computer hardware.

You will study the representation of data and data structures and the design of algorithms, as well as the creation of hardware and software tools and the role of non-computing elements in the design and development process.

Students who meet the entry requirements for the Computer Science degree and for the Bachelor of Science degree may apply for the combined Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Science (Computer Science).

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.

Alternative entry or pathways

The Faculty of Engineering Admission Scheme (FEAS) is a possible alternative admission pathway for the admission of domestic undergraduate students to UNSW Faculty of Engineering degree programs (including the BSc Computer Science and the BSc Food Science (Hons), who do not meet the published Guaranteed Entry selection rank requirement of 93.00. Visit the FEAS page for more info.
