Are you a high-achiever with a passion for science? The Science Catalyst Program combines a Bachelor of Science with Honours with extra experiences, activities and opportunities. It was created for outstanding students, just like you. In addition to the Bachelor of Science with Honours units, in second year you get the opportunity to study for a semester at one of our international partner institutions as part of the Overseas Exchange Program, supported by a $2,500 scholarship. Between your second and third year, and assisted by a $3,000 scholarship, you can undertake a Summer Research Project where you will work with a supervisor on a research topic of your choice. You can even graduate with a custom built, multidisciplinary second degree, the high achiever academic extension Bachelor of Philosophy at no extra cost, with just a few additional units. There is also a $7,500 relocation scholarship available for interstate students moving to Tasmania. If you want to get the most out of your University experience, set yourself apart in your chosen field, and give yourself an edge for future employment, the Science Catalyst Program is for you.
