What will I study?


We’re enormously proud of the quality science education we provide to our students. That’s backed up by our ranking as the #1 university in Australia across a range of science fields.

Course structure

The Bachelor of Science is a 3-year degree, in which you’ll complete 24 subjects. Of the 24 subjects, some will contribute to your major (your chosen specialisation), some will be science electives (other science subjects), and some will be breadth (non-science) subjects.

From 2022, all Bachelor of Science students will complete the new discovery subject Today's Science, Tomorrow's World  in their first semester. Find out more in the video below.

Your major

Our Bachelor of Science gives you the choice of more than 40 majors across all areas of science, biomedicine, mathematics, engineering and IT.

If you already know what you want to study, you can focus in right away. Or, if you haven’t yet decided, you can leave your options open during your first year while you explore.

Tips for choosing a major

Your breadth studies

You can choose from hundreds of breadth (non-science) subjects on offer. Some students use breadth to explore a passion or interest – for example music or history. Others will improve their career prospects by studying a language or law, communication or business skills.
