What will I learn?

The Graduate Diploma in Science will extend the knowledge and expertise gained from your Bachelor of Science degree.

Programme overview

The GradDipSci provides you with an opportunity to choose a second major, extend the field of study you chose for your Bachelor of Science degree, or continue to learn from another discipline at undergraduate level within the Faculty of Science. The GradDipSci also provides a pathway to enter into further study at postgraduate level.

Programme structure

To complete this programme you need to pass courses totalling 120 points. Courses are typically worth 15 points.

At least 75 points (five courses) must be at Stage III or above, from the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Science (Honours) schedules.

At least 60 points must be from a subject major listed in the Bachelor of Science schedule, and this must include the Stage III courses required for the major.

A project or dissertation of up to 30 points may be included if approved prior to enrolment.

Mathematics:

Mathematics concerns the study of numbers, equations, functions, and geometric shapes and their relationships.

Subject overview

Mathematics has many faces. It can be challenging, powerful, fascinating, even mysterious – but above all it is useful. Mathematics makes essential contributions to the biological, information and physical sciences, economics, engineering and finance, but can also be applied to communications, linguistics and genetics.

Wherever problems need to be solved, mathematics has a role to play. For this reason, Mathematics is an excellent major in its own right, or as a second major or supporting subject for many other disciplines.

Where can Mathematics take you?

Mathematics develops advanced problem-solving skills and opens up career opportunities in industry or government, teaching, computer development and programming, systems analysis, operations research and many other fields.

Where could this programme take you?

Because science plays a vital role in addressing the key issues that confront us and future generations, studying the Sciences opens up a wide range of career opportunities. If you have been away from study for a while, the GradDipSci provides an opportunity to learn about new developments in your field of expertise.
