Introducing the new Bachelor of Life Sciences!
Universities: Posted 22-8-14 Deadline - No Deadline

This new degree at UNSW will satisfy your innate curiosity about life, from the way things work at the molecular level, to the study of entire ecosystems. Discoveries in the life sciences are integral to the advancement of our world and society. Many students are drawn to the opportunity to study life sciences rather than science’s physical or numerical disciplines. Although maths and the physical sciences aren’t necessarily part of the degree, there is still the option to study these as electives to broaden and enrich their studies. Predicted ATAR: 80.00. Assumed knowledge: Mathematics, plus one of Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Science (depending on chosen area of study) UAC code: 429050
