Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
The Bachelor of Science Bachelor of Business is designed to produce graduates who are prepared for scientific practice or business and management in technical, financial, regulatory, environmental, health or biomedical oriented businesses, industries or government departments. Students choose one of 10 specialised science majors according to their preference. Students also have a choice of major study in the business stream. Demand is growing for graduates able to cross the divide between science and business. Students develop a combination of scientific and professional business skills, and also the transferable skills that are highly sought-after by employers. Depending on the science and business disciplines chosen, graduates could find themselves working in a wide range of areas: commodity, resource trading, pharmaceutical industries, leading consumer goods companies, hospitals, medical research, industry, environmental protection agencies and government.
Students are required to complete a total of 192 credit points, comprising 96 credit points of science subjects and 96 credit points of business subjects. In the science component, students choose one of 10 possible majors representing the major science disciplines. Students have the option of transferring to a single degree (such as the Bachelor of Science) if they wish to graduate before completion of all the course requirements. Students can complete the course over four years full time. Full-time attendance involves approximately 16 hours each week on campus. Students may also be able to complete the course part time, usually at the rate of two subjects a session (a 50 per cent load), taking eight years to complete. Part-time students may need to attend science classes for at least one half-day a week, in addition to evening classes.
