Undergraduate study

We offer three undergraduate science degrees: the Bachelor of Science, the Bachelor of Biomedical Science, and the Bachelor of Psychology.

Biological Sciences

Biological Science is the study of how living organisms work. Learn to apply this knowledge of living things to make life better for humans, and help the environment.

Available subjects

Biomedical Sciences

From disease prevention and treatment, to the development of new life—study Biomedical Sciences and discover how human bodies operate at the molecular, genetic, and cellular levels.

Available subjects


Study Chemistry and uncover the world’s chemical building blocks. Design new drugs, discover new ways to harness energy, or create new tech to recover precious resources.

Available subjects


Explore the potential of communication to shape our world.

Available subjects

Climate and the Environment

Earth’s natural resources are under increasing pressure. Learn the causes of environmental problems and discover pathways to make our actions more sustainable.

Available subjects

Data Science

Develop the skills to visualise, summarise, analyse, and interpret data—and make sense of information from all areas of life, from business and health to the natural world.
