Course Information

The Diploma of Science will provide you with a basic understanding of the natural and physical sciences, including fundamental theoretical and practical principles of chemistry, biology, and genetics; and for some pathways, environmental science. You will also gain the basic computational skills necessary for scientific practice across observation, analysis and problem solving.

The program will prepare you for further studies in a broad range of areas including biomedicine, environmental sustainability, chemistry and physical sciences, marine, and wildlife and microbiology.

The Diploma will provide you with a solid foundation in natural and physical sciences, enhanced by additional interactive workshops that explore theoretical models in more depth, and language development modules to build the communication skills you need for success in science industries.
