This program is a hands-on degree where students will develop the necessary knowledge and skills for a career in various science specialisations (depending on the major) and/or secondary teaching. The BSc/BTch is highly practical, with experiential learning and excursions making up a large portion of studies. Students will be taught many skills that are transferable across both areas, such as effective communication methods, laboratory technique, project management and health and safety. During the course students will engage in practical opportunities to enable the application of theory in a practical setting.
