    Bachelor of Marine and Antarctic Science with Honours [K4S]


    The Bachelor of Marine and Antarctic Science with Honours provides students with advanced knowledge and scientific training in a specialised area of marine and/or Antarctic science; training in research as preparation for employment in a research organisation, or for postgraduate study in Masters of PhD programs; and equips students with knowledge, skills, competencies and awareness in preparation for employment in industry.

    The degree is fully equivalent to an honours degree with any other University School and satisfies the usual eligibility requirements for research higher degrees and postgraduate scholarships. The program can be taken in one year full-time or two years part-time study. Students can commence the program in either semester 1 or semester 2.

    The Diploma of Ageing Studies and Services will cover contemporary issues relating to care and services for older people. You will learn about the many social and health challenges that are associated with ageing. Areas of focus include the idea of ‘care navigation', policy, safety and health promotion. You will also look at the rising impact of dementia.

    As a graduate of the Diploma of Ageing Studies and Services you will be equipped with contemporary knowledge to assist older adults and their families in navigating the complexity of the aged care system and the trajectory of the needs of older adults across complex health and social systems.

    You could work in a variety of areas including aged care navigation; community support; policy development or in an advisory capacity.

    • Flexible study options are available
    • Student intakes in Semester 1 (full-time or part-time) and Semester 2 (part-time only)
    • Units offered across two semesters
    • Each unit will require 8-10 hours each week for study
    • Dedicated Student Advisors are available to guide your learning

    Articulation: Completion of the Diploma of Ageing Studies and Services would enable articulation into year two of the Bachelor of Dementia Care (with an optional major in Ageing Studies and Services).
