From the outset, your degree in science will equip you with skills to develop as an independent learner on your pathway to becoming a scientist.
You will learn via on-campus face-to-face experiential learning activities in combination with blended and online activities. These activities include lectorials, practical and laboratory sessions, tutorials, workshops, site and field visits, and a capstone research activity. These will be delivered and supported by our passionate academic teams.
Your study will also be supported by a suite of immersive digital learning online resources. Partnerships with industry and a specific focus on career development, including via Work Integrated Learning activities will help further develop and hone your employability skills and capabilities to prepare you for success in your future career.
Assessment types may include class assessments, quizzes, written reports, oral class presentations and videos, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and reports, assignments, reflective journals, and timed assessments.
Across all your learning, we will also support you to develop an understanding of the importance of inclusion, diversity, equity, reconciliation, and sustainability across and beyond science, and encourage and enable your diverse voices and viewpoints to be heard. We seek to empower you to bring positive societal, environmental, and culturally respectful agencies into your studies and future careers.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
