Study Science. Major in Discovery.

If you enjoy being constantly challenged and extended by your studies and are thinking about a career involving scientific research, then the University's Advanced Science degree is for you.

The Bachelor of Science (Advanced Science) is one of a suite of three advanced programs in the sciences, including the Bachelor of Medical Sciences (Advanced) and Bachelor of Natural Science (Advanced).

Advanced Science allows you to study the same discipline areas as the Bachelor of Science, but at a deeper level. It gives you highly specialised skills and knowledge in a science relevant to your career and research interests, and is specifically designed to meet the needs of students with a high ability and motivation in science and a desire for a career in scientific research.

This degree equips students with both specialised knowledge and enhanced inquiry skills in any one of a range of scientific disciplines. The Advanced Science degree is specifically designed to provide initial training for a range of scientific careers involving research and inquiry. You will be partnered with experienced academic researchers and their research teams and participate in the University's exciting research activities to facilitate your transition to Masters by Research Degree or directly into a range of exciting career opportunities available to high-achieving science graduates.

The program includes advanced work, academic extension activities and a significant amount of research training. A mentoring program will link you with an experienced academic staff member and research groups, including medical school academics.

You must maintain a grade point average (GPA) greater than 5 to remain in the course. If you are unable to maintain this average you will be transferred to the corresponding Bachelor of Science.
