Description

Program no longer available: This program information only applies to students who are currently enrolled in the Master of Scientific Studies (Callaghan Campus).

Postgraduate coursework in Science is undertaken in an integrated program comprising Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Masters Programs in the discipline areas of Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics and Physics.

The Overall aim of the program is to provide development and training in a discipline at an advanced level.

Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.
