Overview

Science holds the key to many of the challenges – pandemics, climate change, antibiotic resistance – that threaten the world today. With the UTS Bachelor of Science, students can take their place at the forefront of a profession with the power to build resilience in both humanity and the planet.

This flagship degree has been designed with flexibility in mind: with eight majors to choose from and extensive elective blocks on offer, students can build a degree that’s uniquely theirs. In their first year, they gain access to the ‘scientist’s toolkit’, a series of core subjects designed to help them critically analyse the ways in which science can help solve global problems.

From there, they can dive into specialist science subjects in their chosen major, working in world-class facilities and on industry-standard equipment. Our practice-based learning approach means students learn by doing, translating scientific theory into real-world practice. But they don’t just do it in the classroom: extensive professional experiences, from internships and field trips to global exchange placements, help bring their learning to life.

Science is about more than just what happens in the lab. UTS science students pair the study of hard science with the development of crucial professional skills – inquiry, reflection, innovation and communication – that prepare them for a diverse and thriving career.

International students

Visa requirement: To obtain a student visa to study in Australia, international students must enrol full time and on campus. Australian student visa regulations also require international students studying on student visas to complete the course within the standard full-time duration. Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Pathway course

Successful completion of the following UTS College diplomas at the required level guarantees entry into this course with recognition of prior learning:

  • Diploma of Engineering with a WAM of 60 without any failure
  • Diploma of Science

Assumed knowledge

Mathematics; any two units of English.

At least two units of science relevant to the individual discipline chosen is recommended; HSC Mathematics Extension 1 is recommended for those majoring in mathematics.

Course duration and attendance

Students can complete the course in three years of full-time or six years of part-time study. Part-time students are required to attend some classes in daytime hours. Students who choose the Medical Science major have the option to complete the course in an accelerated mode over two years.

Course structure

Students must complete a total of 144 credit points to graduate. Subjects offered by the University have been classified as introductory (normally taken in stages 1 and 2), intermediate (stages 3 and 4) and advanced (stages 5 and 6 or later). In the Bachelor of Science, students are required to complete one introductory foundation stream. Upon the successful completion of first year, they may choose one of the majors that follow from that stream. The chosen major specifies a series of intermediate and advanced subjects that, if taken, result in award of a Bachelor of Science in that major.

Alternatively, students may choose not to take a specific major but a flexible mix of subjects of interest and graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree without a specified major. If so, they must complete 36 credit points of intermediate and 36 credit points of advanced science subjects. In doing so, students must ensure that they have completed the required prerequisite subjects at each stage. It cannot be guaranteed that all subjects that students in a flexible program wish to take together can be timetabled without clashes and so students need to check timetable constraints before final subject choice each session.

The Bachelor of Science also contains up to 24 credit points of free elective subjects that enable students to increase their expertise in other areas of science or other disciplines in the University. This can be in the form of a specialised 24-credit-point sub-major or by a varied selection of subjects.

Students must satisfactorily complete 120 credit points of specified major or flexible science subjects and, in addition, 24 credit points of elective/sub-major subjects for award of the degree.

Changing majors

Students may change majors in certain circumstances. Students wanting to change majors within the Bachelor of Science are required to raise an e-request via Ask UTS.

Industrial training/professional practice

Students studying this course have an opportunity to undertake an internship subject and receive academic credit for their placement off campus (an external business or research institute) or on campus (UTS research institutes or departments), in a capacity relevant to their academic studies.
