The world is facing immense challenges. For every problem, science is helping us find solutions. Science needs bright young minds with new ideas and approaches. Science needs people like you who want to make a difference.
Welcome to UC Science, where you’ll find like-minded people, leading researchers to mentor you, and challenging, rewarding programmes; some of which are unique in Australasia.
You’ll get to experience science in the real world – in our labs and on-site research centres and clinics, at our field stations and in the workplace.
Whatever stage you’re at—if you’re just starting out in science, want to dive deeper in your field of research, are keen to advance in your career or are seeking a new challenge—we will help you succeed.
The Bachelor of Science (BSc) is the first step to becoming a scientist. It can open doors to many other careers too.
A speech-language qualification is the beginning of a worthwhile and inspiring career in the healthcare sector.
At UC, we don’t just teach science, we do science. In fact, UC is the most research-intensive university in New Zealand.
UC has the most field stations of any New Zealand university and offers hi-tech laboratories, world-leading research centres and latest scientific technologies.
