Further study: graduate research

If research is your passion, or you just want to take your science study further, the first step after the Bachelor of Science (Extended) is to complete research training via one of the Master of Science or Master of Engineering degrees, or the Master of Biomedical Science. Alternatively, you can add an honours year to your Bachelor of Science.

After that, you’ll be all set to apply for a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) or another graduate research program.
