How might new research and innovations in Life Sciences work to secure the future of sustainable societies by countering infectious disease and biodiversity loss? By choosing to pursue a degree in Life Sciences and Global Sustainable Development (GSD), you will be encountering these questions on a daily basis. You will gain valuable lab and analytical experience whilst studying with Life Sciences, and will apply that knowledge to our current understandings of climate change, social justice, and food security. At the end of your first year, you’ll choose either a Biological Sciences or Ecology route, allowing you to study modules tailored to your interests and career aspirations.Our students are aspiring global citizens with social consciences. They are flexible, adaptable and broad-minded. By studying GSD, you’ll take a transdisciplinary approach and confront issues from a diverse array of perspectives. You’ll need to be ready to think creatively and embrace new opinions from your peers from across the world. We’ll challenge you to become an active participant in your own learning and help you to develop professional skills through certificates you’ll complete as part of the course. You’ll also have the opportunity to spend part of your second year studying abroad at our partner institution, Monash University, home to the world-leading Monash Sustainable Development Institute. Alternatively, you may choose to apply for an intercalated year abroad or a work placement (subject to you meeting departmental academic requirements).Students are automatically enrolled on the three-year course, however you have the option to change to a four-year course with an intercalated year in the third year.
