Study with us

The department’s commitment to research-led teaching ensures our students graduate with a broad base in contemporary biological thought, a passion for life-long learning and strong foundations for a career in the biological sciences and related areas.

We have excellent resources for teaching including modern digital laboratories, plant growth and aquatic laboratory facilities, as well as close proximity to natural environments for study on campus and in the MQ Ecology Reserve. Our students also learn in a range of outdoor environments through field trips to Heron Island and other terrestrial and marine locations.
