STUDY SCIENCE. MAJOR IN DISCOVERY.

When you study Science at Western, you're getting ready for a lifelong journey of discovery. Beginning with a strong base of core knowledge, you'll develop the skills you need to investigate any number of scientific disciplines, from A-Z (that's Analytical Chemistry to Zoology).

You'll learn to solve complex problems by working collaboratively with students in other disciplines. That's because it's never too soon to develop working relationships with your scientific colleagues. Our specialist facilities and state-of-the art teaching laboratories are second to none, and our firm commitment to community and industry engagement provide opportunities to graduate with valuable real world experience.

The Science facilities at Western Sydney University span three campuses and include Anatomical, Biological and Chemical Facilities, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance facility, the Mass Spectroscopy Lab and Confocal Bio-Imaging Facility. If you are working with animals, there is the Australian Freshwater Turtle Research Facility, as well as the Mammal and Reptile House. Our Hawkesbury campus is also home to a dedicated Crime Scene House.

At Parramatta the new $30 million Science and Psychology building is the location for one of the University's most important scientific facilities - the Advanced Materials Characterisation Facility, or AMCF.
