Bachelor of Science – Table B – Subject Groups

Group Subjects are compulsory and you must pass two groups to complete your degree. Each group has three subjects, totalling 9 credit points.

Completing these group subjects will allow you to enrol in level 2 and 3 subjects from another area, thereby broadening your understanding of Science.

The first group will be added to your study plan when you choose a major at the commencement of your degree.

Choose a second group related to a second major or an area of interest from the table below and must be different to your first group:
