University of Canberra Environmental Science
The University of Canberra is situated in the nation’s capital city, Canberra, which has recently been named as third in the world ‘Best in Travel’ city ratings according to Lonely Planet. One in six residents work or study at a university within this region, making Canberra Australia’s education capital. One key feature of the University of Canberra is that all new or continuing international students are offered guaranteed accommodation on campus, taking the stress out of moving to a new country. The International Student Support Service (ISSS) provides assistance to international students on all matters, including life outside of study such as child-care support, student safety and welfare, legal matters, and part-time work. Employability of our graduates is paramount, with the University of Canberra’s Science graduates consistently ranked in the top five universities nationally for employment following graduation.
The University of Canberra (UC) offers Environmental Science both as under-graduate and post-graduate options. The key features of Environmental Science at UC include the range of Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) opportunities, both in-course or via internships. UC has strong links with federal government and natural resource management (NRM) organisations, that ensure course content matches employer requirements and enables all Environmental Science students the ability to gain work-place experience. Another distinctive feature is that the courses are aligned with research of the internationally recognised Institute for Applied Ecology, with world-class laboratories for Eco-chemistry, Freshwater Ecology, Wildlife Genetics and Biodiversity. Exciting field trips are a key feature that focus on practical activities to ensure professional relevance of learning.
Study environmental science at UC and you’ll have the opportunity to learn about: water science, environmental chemistry, bioinformatics, spatial analysis, landscape processes, geomorphology and hydrology, wildlife genetics, catchment science, environmental management and more. We also provide Faculty recognised Study Abroad programs in Costa Rica (Marine Science), Peru (Biodiversity) and New Zealand (Geology, Geomorphology, Conservation Biology), which all count as credit toward your degree. Additionally, international articulation arrangements are available for those students who are transferring from their home university.
