Where will this take me?
The Bachelor of Science is your first step towards a dream career in science, engineering, health or technology.
It can take you into a hospital, down a mine, behind the controls of a particle accelerator, out onto a coral reef, into an executive office… or into hundreds of other careers and fields. The choice is yours.
After graduating, you’ll have the breadth, depth and experience you need to join the workforce, or you could move on to graduate study.

After completing a Bachelor of Science, you’ll also be eligible to apply for a range of graduate degrees at other universities.
Further study: graduate research
If research is your passion, the first step after the Bachelor of Science 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 (for selected areas of study).
After that, you’ll be all set to apply for a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) or another graduate research program.
