What will I learn?

The Diploma of Science is designed to empower you to apply scientific thinking and analysis to important issues impacting the world today. Your work as a scientist has the potential to change the future and help solve some of the challenges humanity faces.

We offer two pathways, Life Sciences and Physical Sciences, both of which guarantee entry to 2nd year study at UTS. You will experience practical lab work, small team projects and have the benefit of using world-class facilities including the UTS Science Super Lab and Anatomy facility.

You will be learning from enthusiastic teachers who have a passion for science. Your curriculum is aligned to UTS Bachelor of Science students first year, which means you will be joining the second year of Science at UTS at the same level as your peers. On successful completion of your diploma, you will receive up to 48 credit points towards most UTS Science degrees.

Do you want to build your English language skills while you study? Our Extended program offers the same subjects as the standard program, PLUS Academic English or Academic Communication. This is ideal if you want a confidence boost before taking the next step onto a UTS degree.
