What will I learn?

Interested in science, but not sure where your passion lies? The Bachelor of Science is a highly flexible degree that allows you to choose your specialisation.

Currently, you can choose a major in biological sciences, applied chemistry or physics, or else choose to major in general science (applied sciences), which offers more flexibility in its curriculum. You can also undertake a minor in biotechnology or mathematics, which is required for students interested in pursuing a career in science education. As a student of this degree, you have the opportunity to be a specialist or generalist, and you can opt to take cross-disciplinary subjects.

No matter which path you choose, practical experiences are a fundamental part of your studies, and you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills to real-world projects and problems. You will study in state-of-the-art facilities using industry-standard tools and equipment, ensuring you are job-ready when you graduate.
