Prerequisites for a science degree

A scaled score of at least 50 per cent in any WACE mathematics subject, plus UWA's requirement for competence in English.

Some science majors have higher prerequisites, such as WACE maths 3C/3D, specialist maths 3C/3D, chemistry or physics. If you do not meet the requirements, you may still be able to pursue those interests, by taking additional units.

How to apply

You can apply to begin studies at the University in first or second semester. Different steps apply for Australian and International students.

It is likely that the 21st century will be an unusually challenging time in the history of mankind.

There will be a huge need for people who have problem solving and research expertise in the field of science.

The Bachelor of Science gives you the opportunity to harness the skills and knowledge necessary to make a real contribution to the global challenges facing humanity.

From cutting edge pure and applied science, to new multi-disciplinary fields of science, you will gain a deep understanding of your subject area and acquire the communication and research skills that are embedded throughout each major, preparing you for the many diverse and exciting careers available.

A variety of undergraduate science courses are offered at UWA.

UWA is the first preference for the top achievers among WA school leavers, is at the top of the WA academic ladder, is the oldest university with the best site, the most delightful campus and a very strong and growing research track record."
