Overview

The flexibility of the Bachelor of Science is ideal if you want to pursue a career in science but aren't sure what field you would like to specialise in.

You are encouraged to choose a broad range of courses in your first year, to expand your general understanding of science and enable you to choose from a wide selection of major options in your second and third year. There are 24 majors to choose from including Anatomy, Food Science, Microbiology, Physiology, Bioinformatics, Genetics, Molecular and Cell Biology, Psychology, Biology, Geography, Neuroscience, Statistics, Biotechnology, Marine and Coastal Science, Pathology, Vision Science, Chemistry, Materials Science, Pharmacology, Earth Science, Mathematics, Physical Oceanography, Ecology and Physics. If you already know what you want to specialise in, you can tailor your degree from the start.

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.
