It is unique in offering students opportunities to extend their study of science and embark upon research from their very 1st year through research training and project work. There is great flexibility in the program, allowing you to follow your interests without being confined by traditional boundaries.
  • Entry requirements
    Domestic students Prerequisites: At least three of SACE Stage 2 Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematical Studies, Physics, Specialist Mathematics You can qualify for undergraduate courses through: * year 12 qualifications * mature age entry (STAT) * TAFE/VET qualifications * higher education transfers. Flinders also offers a range of special access schemes. International Students Prerequisites: At least three of SACE Stage 2 Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematical Studies, Physics, Specialist Mathematics English language requirements
  • Academic Title
    Bachelor of Science (Honours) - an enhanced program for high achievers
  • Course description
    You can choose to complete either:

        * 2 major sequences
        * 1 major, 1 minor sequence and electives
        * an extended major and electives.

    We offer options in the traditional core sciences such as Chemistry, Physics, Biological Sciences and Mathematics, and options as diverse as Bioinformatics and Ocean and Climate Sciences.
