DP-SCI UniLink Diploma Hawthorn Send me a link to this course

Want to know more about how the world around us works? The Diploma of Science (UniLink) gives you an alternative pathway into higher education. You'll learn in a supportive and friendly university environment where you can explore scientific thinking and how it shapes the world we live in.

Study Science to build a scientific career using physics, biology, chemistry and mathematics. You'll learn how to do this as an individual and as part of a collaborative team.

Learn how to conduct scientific research and solve conceptual problems. Get practical skills in data modelling and analysis, as well as computer-based analysis. Develop a broad understanding of laboratory analyses and chemical reactions. This diploma will prepare you for further study towards working in professional scientific environments, such as hospitals, laboratories and education.

Over 8 months, you’ll study content that is similar to a bachelor degree, but in smaller class sizes – so you'll have more one-on-one time with your teachers. When you finish your UniLink diploma, you can move straight into a Bachelor of Science at Swinburne, adding no additional time or money to your studies.
