Our courses

Biological Sciences

"I'm in my final year, which means I get to carry out a capstone project, which brings together all the skills you’ve learned throughout the duration of your degree. Our project explored the preference of fruit ripeness stages for a particular species of fruit fly in Queensland."

Emma Carter

Bachelor of Science (Biological Sciences)

Earth Science

"I was fortunate enough to have a very, very engaging and passionate lecturer, and I think really it was his ability to connect with students that really drew me towards it in the first instance. I found that having that passion from the lecturer really facilitated learning."

Katrina Bourke

Bachelor of Science (Earth Science)

Environmental Science

"I like environmental science because it combines a lot of different scientific disciplines into the one. There's chemistry, geology and biology. In environmental science, they all come together."

Through our research strength in plant biotechnology we're improving the disease resistance, stress tolerance and nutritional status of a range of crops.

Our researchers have made significant discoveries ranging from new marsupial species through to insights into the importance of volcanic eruptions to the ecology of the Great Barrier Reef.

In the Australian Government's 2018 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) framework, our ambitious research in Environmental Science and Ecological Applications have been rated at the highest possible level: 'well above world standard.'
