Explore the wonder of science: As a Bachelor of Science (BSc) student at Victoria, you’ll absorb knowledge, observe phenomena, experiment with ideas, and maybe even be part of making new discoveries. With a strong practical focus, a BSc will take you beyond the lecture theatre with hands-on laboratories, field trips, and summer scholarship opportunities.

Get a postgraduate degree

At the end of your three-year BSc you can continue your learning with postgraduate studies. Give your career options a boost and choose from the range of postgraduate science programmes offered.

Choose your speciality

The Bachelor of Science is a varied, flexible degree. There are hundreds of unique combinations to choose from—we offer courses in more than 25 specialised scientific areas. You can also include subjects from outside science in your degree so you'll graduate with qualifications tailored to suit your interests and future career goals.
