Did you start exploring geology but end up discovering geography? Or perhaps you dipped your toe into chemistry but came out with physics?

The Graduate Diploma in Science allows you to complete the equivalent of a major in one of 14 streams, depending on your academic background.

Broaden your expertise

The Graduate Diploma in Science is designed for students who have already completed a bachelor degree with one major, as well as first-year subjects in another area of science, which they’d now like to pursue for further study.

A course tailored for you

Choose from a broad range of streams, including botany, chemistry, medicinal chemistry, genetics, integrated geography, human geography, physical geography, geology, pure mathematics, applied mathematics, discrete mathematics/operations research, statistics/stochastic processes, physics and zoology.

If you’ve also completed second-year subjects in your chosen area, you may also want to consider the Graduate Certificate in Science.
