Science at the University of Newcastle

"The University of Newcastle has a great reputation for producing career-ready graduates" - Sarah

No aspect of our world is untouched by science. This immense field underpins areas such as technology, industry, business, agriculture, environment, research, health and the information revolution.

The University of Newcastle is recognised nationally and internationally for excellence in scientific research. In 2012 Excellence in Research for Australia ranked the University of Newcastle equivalent to world-class standard and above in seven of our science disciplines.

This positive ranking is reflective of the calibre and commitment of the academic staff, which includes 2012 NSW Scientist of the Year, Laureate Professor John Aitken. Our academics are actively involved in research, which means your teaching will include the latest developments and advancements happening in the real world.

Offered through the Faculty of Science and Information Technology, the Bachelor of Science at the University of Newcastle gives you the opportunity to work alongside leading researchers through programs such as our Summer Scholarships and the Merit Pathway, which provide high achieving students the opportunity to enhance their undergraduate science degree and reach their full potential.
