Bachelor of Science (Advanced Science)
The laws of science don't constrain advancement; they merely define the limits of our understanding. The University of Western Sydney's Advanced Science degree is your opportunity to expand those limits and to write new laws.
Advanced Science allows you to study the same discipline areas as the Bachelor of Science, but to a deeper level. It gives you highly specialised skills and knowledge in a science relevant to your career and research interests, and is specifically designed to meet the needs of students with a high ability and motivation in science and scientific research.
The degree includes advanced coursework, academic extension activities and a significant amount of research training. A mentoring program will link you with an experienced academic staff member and research groups.
