Teaching in Life and Environmental Sciences
The school of Life and Environmental Sciences has one of the largest range of courses in the field of science and environment. These courses cover areas from forensic science and biomedical science to wildlife and conservation biology and marine biology. All of these courses have been designed with our students in mind and the requirements of their potential employers.
A hands-on and applied focus to delivering our courses is appreciated by students and employers alike. Students have a relevant learning environment, and employers gain job-ready graduates. During all our courses students are exposed to field work and laboratory work (depending on the focus of the degree). Another critical aspect of our programs are that most students will complete a professional practice unit. During this unit students work in their chosen area for an extended period of time. The skills developed during this period and the networks made often lead to employment early after graduating.
Our focus is on delivering excellent courses that are recognised by both students and employers as relevant and innovative. Many of our academic staff have been recognized for excellent contributions to teaching and learning through both university and national level awards.
