    Here, the opportunities are endless. It’s absolutely amazing to study and the facilities are incredible. The fieldwork options are amazing as well, with the Great Barrier Reef at our doorstep.

    Hannah Green

    Bachelor of Advanced Science, majoring in Zoology, Ecology and Earth Science

    The best part of the degree was the seminars where we met with the coordinator and other professional scientists who showed us a wide range of pathways and careers in industry, government and academia. The cohort was small so their advice and support was very personal which helped me develop confidence and direction.

    Lecturer

    Associate Professor Eric Roberts

    Head of Earth and Environmental Science

    It is nice to be part of a smaller university where staff and students actually get to know each other, and where there is opportunity to be involved in research. A highlight of our degree is the opportunity for field-based learning, bringing students into the field, and providing real hands on learning.
