Bachelor of Science (Advanced)

The University of Adelaide

This program is designed for high-achieving students who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of science, with a strong emphasis on research skill development. This program provides students with the early opportunity to participate in the academic and research culture of the scientific areas they are most interested in, while still providing the choice and flexibility of a Bachelor of Science. Students participate in program specific courses that will introduce topics on processes, communication and methods used in science research. Students will also participate in structured research activities and research seminars, normally only available to honours and postgraduate students. In addition, a semester long research placement and lab attachments will provide breadth of experience. These activities will allow associations with academic staff in major research areas, providing early access to research laboratories/projects that can be further developed for an Honours year and postgraduate study (Masters or PhD).
