Bachelor of Science: career-ready for the jobs of the future

In the Bachelor of Science, you'll be taught, mentored and inspired by international experts in their fields. If you already have a career in mind, or want to take your time to find your passion, we've set the course up so you can decide. Your area of specialty will be complemented by breadth study to broaden your skillset with subjects such as law, languages, business or communications.

Join Associate Professor Deb King to discover why the Bachelor of Science is your pathway to a career as a chemist, vet, marine biologist, data scientist, doctor and hundreds more. Our graduates are well-rounded, with interdisciplinary skills and knowledge, who can lead inside and outside the lab.

At this information evening, you'll learn about the more than 40 science, biomedicine, mathematics, engineering and IT majors and how you can leverage these to create a degree unique to you. Hear from a student panel on their experience at Melbourne and their plans once they graduate, ranging from the workforce to further study. You'll have the opportunity to ask questions of the panel and the course director.

This session is tailored for prospective students (and their parent or adult guardian) looking to apply for mid-year entry in 2022 or start their undergraduate degree 2023. All students and their guest are required to register to book their place. Thank you.
