Plan your study
Course Planning Tool
My Course Planner can help you to plan your subjects and majors for your Bachelor of Arts, Biomedicine, Commerce, Design or Science.
Breadth subjects in the Bachelor of Science
Broaden your horizons and enhance your career prospects with subjects taken from outside your main area of study.
These subjects are usually laboratory or fieldwork subjects where enrolment capacity is limited by available resources. Students are selected on the basis of academic merit.
Undergraduate research projects
Undertaking a research project is a fantastic way to develop practical scientific skills. It will also provide valuable experience to students considering honours, masters or a PhD in Science.
Internships provide you with opportunities to gain hands-on work experience while you apply the knowledge and skills you’ve developed. They can even lead to other opportunities for work, study, or research and can help you decide on a career path aligned with your skills, interests, and goals.
Open to Bachelor of Agriculture students, the Dookie semester allows you to combine your studies with what’s happening on the Dookie Farm and surrounding region to get real life experience.
