3 years full-time
For Continuing Students Only
From 2021, commencing students are referred to the Bachelor of Science (1634).
You will gain specialised skills and practical knowledge for a professional career in the biological, clinical, chemical, physical and mathematical sciences.
In your first year, you will study core science courses. From your second year onwards, you will choose a major that suits your interests and career plans. You can undertake laboratory work in state-of-the-art facilities or fieldwork, depending on the major you choose. In your final year, you can participate in industry internships to gain employment-relevant experience.
You will have access to experts from renowned research centres such as the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery (GRIDD), the Centre for Quantum Dynamics, Queensland Micro and Nanotechnology Centre, the Institute for Glycomics, the Australian Rivers Institute and the Environmental Futures Research Institute.
You can choose from the following majors:
The Bachelor of Science is offered full-time on campus.
As a full-time student you will generally attend 15-25 hours of scheduled classes per week throughout the trimester. Classes may be scheduled during the day and evening throughout the week.
The University's Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination or Testing policy is under review and consultation and will be suspended from 14/4/2022. Please visit Studying amid COVID-19 for more information.
If you are an International student on a student visa, you must ensure that you enrol in a way that will allow you to complete your enrolment within the expected program duration as stated on your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).
Work-integrated learning activities integrate theoretical learning with its application in the workplace. The inclusion of work-integrated learning activities in this degree program demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life.
This program has incorporated workplace-authentic practical activities, undertaken in the field or laboratory, or actual work-integrated learning as an integral component of the capstone course, providing opportunity for students to complete their studies in an industry placement, as part of a formal Research Centre or as a working member of a research group.
A Griffith science degree will equips graduates you with the experimental, theoretical, computational and communication skills necessary for working as a scientist in a range of fields.
Depending on your major, you will be prepared for work in environment-related jobs, for example as an environment consultant, environmental scientist or mine environment officer; in biological, chemical and clinical sciences as a microbiologist, pharmaceutical scientist, biochemist, chemist or biotechnologist; in physics and maths as a mathematician or physicist; or, with further study, in a broader role, for example as a patents officer or science teacher.
You may also choose to undertake a fourth-year research honours degree that can lead to a PhD and a career in research.
As a graduate of the Bachelor of Science, you will (depending upon your major) be eligible for membership of the following professional bodies:
An International student is one who is not:
The indicative annual tuition fee is calculated based on a standard full-time study load which is usually 80 credit points (two full-time trimesters).
The indicative annual tuition fee is based on current conditions and available data and should only be used as a guide. These fees are reviewed annually and are subject to change.
If the fee rate for your program is not displayed above, please contact Student Connect for assistance.
If an International student changes to a different program they will be subject to the approved program fee for the trimester in which they are enrolled.
If an undergraduate student obtains permanent resident status in Australia after commencing study in a program, and the student can provide evidence of permanent resident status prior to the census date (of the trimester in which they are enrolled), the student will be provided with a domestic fee-paying place.
The student may then apply for a Commonwealth supported place at the next admission period provided that the student satisfies the conditions for transfer from a domestic fee-paying place to a Commonwealth supported place as set out in the Undergraduate Programs Admission Policy.
If a postgraduate student obtains permanent resident status in Australia after commencing study in a program, and the student can provide evidence of permanent resident status prior to the census date (of the trimester in which they are enrolled), the student will automatically be considered for a Commonwealth supported place (subject to availability) or a domestic fee-paying place as applicable for the program.
If a research student obtains permanent resident status in Australia after commencing study in a program, and the student can provide evidence of permanent resident status prior to the census date (of the trimester in which they are enrolled), the student will automatically be considered for a Commonwealth Government Research Training Program (RTP) Fee Offset or a domestic fee-paying place as applicable for the program.
