Program description

The Bachelor of Science (Extended) is a degree for talented Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians who may not meet the regular Bachelor of Science entry requirements.

This four-year course is your first step towards a dream career in science or technology.

It can take you into a hospital, down a mine, behind the controls of a particle accelerator, out onto a coral reef…or into hundreds of other careers and fields. The choice is yours.

You’ll have access to the full range of subject choices and opportunities within the Bachelor of Science, plus built-in support and academic skills development to ensure your success.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who receive an ATAR score of more than 50 are encouraged to apply.

Tailor your degree

In your degree, you’ll have the choice of more than 40 majors, covering all fields of science.

If you already know what you want to study, you can start shaping your career right away. If you’re not sure and have interests in many areas, you can begin by leaving your options open while you explore.


We know that starting uni can be equal parts exciting and overwhelming. To make sure you feel comfortable and confident here, we’ll provide plenty of support throughout your degree.

You’ll be offered practical workshops and tailored academic support that is only available in this program.


During your first year you have the option to live on campus in one of the University’s residential colleges, giving you an incredible start to your time with us.

You’ll also have access to opportunities including study abroad, volunteering and leadership opportunities, and internships to help you build experience for your future career.

Financial assistance

To help you get set up at uni, all students starting the Bachelor of Science (Extended) in 2020 will receive a $2000 scholarship.

There are also plenty of other scholarships you can apply for, including scholarships to cover your residential college fees.

The Bachelor of Science (Extended) is part of a broader Indigenous STEM education project managed by CSIRO in partnership with the BHP Billiton Foundation.
