We teach an exciting range of contemporary undergraduate and postgraduate courses which provide a strong base of core knowledge together with specialist research focussed study in a large range of disciplines.
Our disciplines include Bachelors of Science undergraduate programs in biomedical sciences, agricultural and animal sciences, natural, biological and chemical sciences, environmental science and ecology, food and nutrition, forensic science and zoology. Postgraduate students undertake research degrees at Masters and PhD level in all our disciplines and through their study, engage with nationally and internationally renowned researchers and collaborators. The School’s research strengths are broad and include eighteen fields of research ranked at either world standard, above world standard, or well above world standard in the 2018 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) assessment.
We provide cutting-edge, integrated learning and research experiences for all undergraduate and postgraduate students. This approach is underpinned by a firm commitment to work integrated learning with business, industry, government and the wider community.
Students have unparalleled opportunities to develop their professional skills by working closely with relevant industry and community partners and reap the benefits of a challenging and rewarding educational experience.
Our teaching and research facilities are second to none and undergraduate students study in state-of-the-art teaching laboratories and learning spaces, taking advantage of specialist facilities for all of our discipline areas - from leading nanotechnology, analytical chemistry, biomolecular and environmental science laboratories, anatomy hall to our forensic science crime scene, animal and wildlife facilities, our Hawkesbury Farm, and medicinal chemistry laboratories. In addition, our students and academic staff are supported by our comprehensive Technical Services Unit who specialize in facilitating training in Mass Spectrometry, Bio-Imaging Confocal Microscopy, and our Advanced Materials Characterisation Facility.
