The life sciences domain brings together the biological, environmental and medical sciences into a far-reaching and fascinating field of study.

The Bachelor of Life Sciences will satisfy your innate curiosity about life, from the way things work at the molecular level, to the study of entire ecosystems. Life Science underpins health and environmental science. Discoveries in the life sciences are integral to the advancement of our world and society. 

If you are one of the many students who chose and enjoyed biology in the HSC, then the Bachelor of Life Sciences is for you. Many students are drawn to the opportunity to study life sciences rather than science’s physical or numerical disciplines.  Although maths and the physical sciences aren’t necessarily part of the degree, there is still the option to study these as electives to broaden and enrich your studies.

As a graduate, you will leave equipped to enter a wide range of interesting and rewarding careers, both in and beyond the sphere of the life sciences. Besides the many employment opportunities, the degree is a useful pathway to postgraduate study, especially in health and medical fields.

The Bachelor of Life Sciences allows you to undertake a wide range of complementary studies. You can also use your studies as a transfer into almost any other degree. Those students who excel in life sciences can undertake an Honours research year in a related field after completing their degree.
