As our student, you’ll learn from active researchers and academics who have won awards for teaching excellence. You’ll also have the opportunity to engage with relevant industry and community partners.
Your time with us is about more than finding a career. It’s also about discovering new places and experiences. As our student, you can complete part of your degree overseas, and you’ll also get access to a range of international community engagement projects.
You can choose to study science, biomedical science or environmental science. And as our graduate, you’ll be equipped to enter a career in the research, commercial or education aspects of science. Your skills in analysis, problem solving and decision making will mean you’re employable by a range of industries, not only ‘science-based’ organisations.

Dr Cliff Seery is an ecotoxicologist and lecturer in environmental science with experience in research, teaching and consulting.
His research interests lie primarily in the field of aquatic toxicology, and as such, he is passionate about developing new means with which we are able to assess and monitor the impacts of pollution. He also undertakes research that aids our understanding of the environmental harm caused by emerging contaminants and changing climates.
“We’ve got some fantastic tutors and I’m really enjoying all my classes. Being able to dissect and look at a sheep’s kidney and a sheep’s brain — that was one of my favourites!
I’m worried about cuts to public health, wealth inequality and the cutting of social services in general. It’s one of the topics we discussed when we did healthcare ethics during two weeks on the Rome campus of ACU. It was like being on the set of Q&A!”
Books, fees, living expenses — costs can be a factor when considering study. But it shouldn’t stop you from pursuing your goals.
