About this program
The Dean’s Scholars Program provides an enriched course of study for current Year 12 students (or those returning from a gap year) who obtain a high level of achievement in their studies.

The Program is designed for Australian and international students with an OP 1 or 2 (or equivalent) with outstanding academic ability, leadership potential and active involvement in their school and local community.

Design your own degree
The Bachelor of Information Technology provides you with the practical skills and theoretical knowledge to become an effective professional. The 24-unit degree comprises:
- 8 core units - 4 introductory units in first semester to introduce you to the breadth of information technology and its relationship to modern society. Then there are 4 advanced units spread over the rest of your degree program to develop your professional skills in preparation for your career
- 4 breadth units (intermediate level units) - these units give you broad technical experience across a range of fields in information technology. They also give you an introduction to choose the specialisation you wish to focus on
- 4 specialisation units (advanced level units) - these units allow you to focus on your chosen area of study, or you may choose to continue to broaden your information technology skills. This option allows you to study across a selection of study areas rather than focusing on one specialisation
- 8 optional units - these units allow you to customise your degree by studying in another professional discipline (for example, business, health, or science). Or you may choose to gain further depth in other areas of information technology.
In your first semester you will explore how information technology has changed the world and what the possibilities are for the future. You will look at the details of information, computing and communication technologies to understand how they work. You will take part in hands-on projects developing small information technology systems.

Throughout Year 2 you will undertake one breadth unit, two specialisation units and four optional units.
