About science

When you’re a scientist, you’re a pioneer of change and discovery. You could explore new ways of curing or treating disease, research new medical techniques and procedures, develop the next wonder drug or help to build a more sustainable world. 

Double degrees at ACU

Our bachelors program gives you the opportunity to specialise in more than one field. For example, a double degree in biomedical science and law will put you in a prime position to work in areas such as research, as a solicitor in the private sector, or as in house counsel for pharmaceutical companies.

Gain work experience

We want you to experience the real world, not just  the lab. Our strong links to industry and the community mean that you’ll have experience under your belt even before you graduate. During your studies with us, you’ll have the chance to take a professional placement with one of our industry partners or to volunteer with a community service. 

Innovative facilities

It’s important to put theory into practice when you’re studying science – that’s how you can truly discover the world. When you study science at ACU, you’ll get access to cutting-edge wet and dry laboratories to practise your craft. Students in Brisbane and Sydney will also have access to anatomy laboratories.

Study university worldwide

If you dream of making big discoveries, why not start by exploring countries beyond our borders? Studying science with us can take you from here to just about anywhere in the world. You can choose to study units at our Rome campus, go on exchange to a university overseas or even collaborate on research with our international partners.

Theresa Nguyen

Science student

I have really enjoyed my time at ACU. What I enjoy the most about being a student here is that the faculty and student support are really good. I've gotten to know staff members really well. I appreciate how they are happy to give me the extra help when I need it. There's a really friendly and warm atmosphere here at ACU.

Dr Christian Cobbold

Deputy Head, School of Science, Qld

Dr Christian Cobbold is a senior lecturer and the biomedical science degree coordinator with a clinical biochemistry background. He undertook a PhD in virology and cell biology, and subsequently ran a research group at Oxford University investigating the cell biology of Menkes disease, a disease characterised by defective copper transport.

Dr Cobbold has a passion for research and high quality teaching, and since 2013 has published six peer reviewed papers with students as first author, providing them invaluable literature and research skills. His research interests lie primarily in the field of exercise and health, particularly physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease; he also has a passion for the integration of eLearning into teaching and learning strategy and coordinates projects involved in the use of technology in the classroom to improve student engagement and outcomes.
