If you enjoy being constantly challenged and extended by your studies and are thinking about a career involving Science research, then the B.Sc. Advanced Science degree allows exposure to research in an undergraduate degree. Inquiry based research is introduced for all science students in first year, however in second year, Advanced Science students interact with world renowned researchers to provide extensive and individual training to develop leadership and/or research skills. This involves completing advanced science units only available to Advanced Science students, which focus on research methodology and developing skills pertinent for a future works in science project management. On completing a science major, the degree also allows for completion of an additional sub-major or 4 free electives, so students can design their own learning journey.
Students choosing MT3021 Nutrition and Food Science will be required to complete a compulsory work placement of a minimum 100 hours. Students choosing any other testamur major may also elect to complete a work placement.
All students must complete 60 credit points of study at Level 3 to meet course requirements. Depending on the specialisation selected, students may need to select at least 10 credit points of elective study at Level 3 to meet this requirement.
Students can choose from a range of majors:
Animal Science, Applied Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Nutrition and Food science, Zoology and Forensic science.
Students need to note that different majors are offered on different campuses, and not all majors will be offered at every campus.
|Cost of living||1 person||$8,688|
|Accommodation||1 bed room||$8,632|
Assumed Knowledge: Students should have at least two unit English, and two unit science (any science) and two unit mathematics at year 12 equivalent. Minimum ATAR of 90.
Students must maintain a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5.0 or above to continue their enrolment in the course. If this GPA is not maintained they will be automatically transferred into the standard program after one warning (one semester of further study). Students in other WSU science courses who achieve a GPA of 5.0 or greater at the end of their first year of study may be admitted into the Advanced Science program by invitation if sufficient places are available.
As an advanced science graduate, you can look forward to career opportunities in:
