How To Use This Book
to qualify for University, TAFE or
College entry
Follow these steps before you choose your Year 11 and
Year 12 subjects:
1. USE Section One to find out more about: the Senior
Education Profile (SEP); the importance of your Overall
Position (OP); Field Positions (FPs); the Queensland
Core Skills (QCS) Test; and the tertiary selection
process in general.
2. REFER to Section Two to investigate your Areas of Interest.
Decide which areas most interest you and which you would
like to pursue as a career.
3. USE Section Three to check out the Tertiary Courses that
relate to your Area of Interest. These are listed by institution.
4. CHECK Section Three for the Course Entry
Requirements to the courses that interest you. This
section has information about subject prerequisites, other
requirements such as portfolios and auditions, and Field
Positions, where relevant, for each course.
INTRODUCTION TO TERTIARY STUDY - A SMALL STEP INTO A BIG FUTURE
Interest Areas
The kind of planning needed to make successful subject choices and
career decisions takes time, thought and research into the wide range of
options available.
One of the factors that will help in your Senior subject decision-making is
that, generally, courses in the same area or field of study have the same or
similar entry requirements.
3
Subject choice is a personal decision that requires you to think carefully
about what you are good at and what genuinely interests you. Take time
to think about possible careers and use the people around you, including
parents, teachers and other advisers and experts such as guidance officers
or counsellors to discuss your
interests, concerns and future
plans.
Course Entry Requirements
Section 3 of the book is set out as a table, on an institution-by-institution
basis, with each course entry detailing the duration of the course, the
entry requirements for that course, and the Field Positions that will be
used if information in addition to
the Overall Position is required.
Spend some time considering the
wide range of courses available
and the institutions offering them.
Take the time to find out not only
the requirements for admission to
courses but also the locations of the
institutions, as attendance at some
institutions may involve extensive
travel or living away from home.
The Tertiary Prerequisites
Book
Tertiary Prerequisites is written
to help you, and the people who
can advise you, make your road
towards tertiary study easier, more
realistic, and ultimately more
effective.
The book is a great resource
that will assist you in exploring
more than 1600 courses available
through QTAC’s participating
institutions. Courses available
through QTAC range from
certificate courses that may take less than a year to complete, to degree
courses that may take three, four or five years to complete. The types of
courses available are also very different in terms of how much practical or
theoretical study is involved. Usually the shorter courses are more ‘handson’‚ while the longer courses tend to involve a greater combination of
both theory and practice.
Tertiary Prerequisites provides an overview of the courses that institutions
expect to be available in 2013 and, most importantly, it provides a
detailed ‘map’ of the requirements for entry to those courses. Even
though 2013 seems a lifetime away right now, most of you will finish
Year 12 in 2012 and will be applying in September that year for courses
commencing in 2013.
What all this comes down to, is that you will need to consider the areas
of tertiary study that appeal to you, identify the requirements for entry to
those courses, and then plan your Senior years with this in mind.
Aside from Queensland Year 10 students, the book will also be useful to
prospective applicants from all over Australia who may be contemplating
tertiary study in Queensland or northern New South Wales in 2013.
While the book provides a very good guide to the courses expected to
be available in 2013, new courses will inevitably be added and some
will be withdrawn. The QTAC Guide to Tertiary Courses and the QTAC
website www.qtac.edu.au will keep you informed about the latest choices
available and provide course outlines and other relevant information.
The QTAC Guide is provided to all Queensland students in year 12 and
is also available for purchase from QTAC or newsagencies throughout
Queensland and northern New South Wales.
The course entry requirements
(prerequisites) listed in this book
are usually subjects studied in
Years 11 and 12 and are linked to
the exit assessment levels required
at the end of your Senior study.
The book also gives other requirements, such as portfolio and audition
requirements, that you may need to present when you apply.
You will also note that in some cases subjects are listed as assumed
knowledge or recommended study. These categories indicate that
undertaking such subjects in Years 11 and 12 would be beneficial,
especially in the case of assumed knowledge, but are not essential for
admission to that course. See page 4, under the heading ‘Choosing Senior
Subjects’ for definitions of assumed knowledge and recommended study.
Taking the Step
Once you have taken time to consider your goals, your subject selection
will set you on the path to achieving those goals. Like any journey, there
will be unexpected bridges to cross, and at these points you will need to
pause and reflect on your path so far and, if necessary, modify your goals.
The point to remember, though, is that in most cases the bridges can be
crossed. So remain calm and rest assured that once you have chosen your
course of study there is always a way of getting there.
APPLYING FOR TERTIARY STUDY IN 2013
If you plan to go on to tertiary study at any of the institutions
listed in section 3 you will apply through QTAC for a place.
Applications can be submitted from 1 July in the year you are studying
Year 12 and are made via QTAC’s Twelve to Tertiary online application
at www.qtac.edu.au. You can list up to six different courses on your
application including courses starting in first or second semester 2013.
Having several course preferences means you can apply for a number
of suitable courses and have back-up options if you don’t get your first
choice.
Read the QTAC Guide to Tertiary Courses or visit the QTAC website
www.qtac.edu.au for more information about applying closer to the time.
Introduction
As you take your first classes in semester two, you probably have some
general idea of what kind of career you might like to pursue or what
interests you might like to follow after your secondary schooling is over.
If your interests call for additional education, either at university, TAFE
or college level, you will need to make some decisions now about the
subjects in Years 11 and 12 which will help you get into the courses that
allow you to follow your goals and dreams.
An important activity in planning your future is considering what you are
interested in. This may be easier than identifying a specific course that is
‘right for you’. Tertiary Prerequisites directs you to your areas of interest,
outlines some of the career opportunities, and shows you what courses
are available at QTAC’s participating institutions. The 11 interest areas
are: Built Environment and Design; Business and Tourism; Creative and
Performing Arts; Education; Engineering and Technology; Health and
Recreation; Humanities and Social Sciences; Information Technology;
Law; Primary Industries and Environment; and Sciences.
SECTION 1
You are now on the home run to the end of Year 10. It is a time
to look ahead seriously and choose your Senior subjects with
future study and career in mind.
THE SENIOR EDUCATION PROFILE
SECTION 1
Students may undertake a range of studies in their senior phase
of learning. All certification relating to Senior schooling is
determined by the Queensland Studies Authority (QSA).
Introduction
4
Queensland Studies Authority
Address: 154 Melbourne Street, South Brisbane Qld
Postal address: PO Box 307, Spring Hill Qld 4004
Phone: (07) 3864 0299; Fax: (07) 3221 2553
Email: [email protected]
Website: www.qsa.qld.edu.au
During their Senior phase of learning, students may undertake:
• Authority subjects – an area of learning with an approved QSA
syllabus and school work program and QSA moderation procedures.
(The exit levels of achievement in section 3 of this book are for
Authority subjects, eg English (4,SA), unless otherwise stated)
• Authority-registered subjects
• Vocational Education and Training (VET) certificate studies
• school based apprenticeships and traineeships
• tailored training programs
• international learning
• preparatory, enrichment and advanced courses recognised by QSA
Year 12 Certification
Students completing Year 12 may receive one or more of the following:
• Senior Statement ­– records all learning in the student’s learning
account and the results achieved during the Senior phase of learning
including a result for the QCS Test if applicable
• QCE - Queensland Certificate of Education – confirms a significant
amount of learning at a set standard, including literacy and numeracy
requirements
• QCIA - Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement
– confirms learning outcomes for special needs students on
individualised learning programs
• VET Certificate - vocational education and training certificate –
certifies competence in a vocational education and training course or
qualification level
• Tertiary Entrance Statement – issued by QSA to OP-eligible
students, it reports a student’s OP in one of 25 bands from one, the
highest, through to 25. The Tertiary Entrance Statement also reports
up to five Field Positions (FPs)
The Overall Position (OP) is a statewide rank order of students based
on their achievement in Authority subjects. It shows how well an
individual student performed in their Senior studies when compared with
the performance of all other OP-eligible students in the state.
A student’s OP, together with subject prerequisites or other requirements
such as portfolios and interviews, is very important in determining which
tertiary course they could gain entry to.
Field Positions (FPs) show a student’s rank order position (on a one to
10 scale, with one being the highest) based on achievement in Authority
subjects. These fields identify areas of study that emphasise particular
knowledge and skills. FPs are determined only for OP-eligible students
and only for the fields for which their subject choices qualify them.
The five Field Positions are:
Field A = Extended written expression involving complex analysis
and synthesis of ideas.
Field B = Short written communication involving reading,
comprehension and expression in English or a foreign language.
Field C = Basic numeracy involving simple calculations and graphical
and tabular interpretation.
Field D = Solving complex problems involving mathematical
symbols and abstractions.
Field E = substantial practical performance involving physical or
creative arts or expressive skills.
Different subjects contribute different weight to the different fields. For
example, Maths B and Maths C contribute more highly to Fields C and
D than English or History. On the other hand, English and History
contribute more highly to Fields A and B than Maths B or Maths C.
FPs are used to provide more information when considering two or
more applicants with the same OP at the cut-off point for a course. This
additional information is used to choose between students for a very
small number of courses. For entry into semester 1 2010, only 12 courses
(less than one percent) required Field Positions to be used.
OP Ineligible Studies
If you do not qualify for an OP you will be considered for tertiary
entrance on the basis of your academic achievements and your results in
the QCS Test, if you sit it, or other qualifications such as certificate study.
For more information on how OP Ineligible Students are assessed for
tertiary study see page 6.
CHOOSING SENIOR SUBJECTS
If you intend going on to tertiary study you should be aware
that the main selection criteria are your Overall Position or
QTAC selection rank (for OP ineligible students), and successful
completion of the minimum entry requirements for a course.
Minimum entry requirements are usually prerequisite subjects.
Subject Prerequisites
Subject prerequisites are the subjects you study in Year 11 and Year 12
that are stated by universities, TAFE and colleges in section 3 of this
book as necessary for you to complete at the required level to qualify for
entry to particular courses.
Subject prerequisites are expressed as minimum achievement levels in
specific senior subjects. For example, English (4,SA) indicates that the
Queensland Studies Authority subject English (or equivalent) must have
been studied over four semesters (ie Years 11 and 12) and an overall Exit
Assessment of Sound Achievement or better obtained.
Assumed Knowledge
Assumed knowledge is the minimum level of achievement in a Senior
subject (or equivalent) considered necessary for successful first year
tertiary study. Students lacking the assumed level of knowledge are not
prevented from enrolling; however, they may be disadvantaged unless
they undertake recommended bridging, preparatory or appropriate
introductory subjects prior to or during their first year of study. Further
information is available from the Admissions Office of the institution
concerned.
Recommended Study
This applies to subjects recommended in order to undertake a course
successfully. These subjects are not entry requirements and do not affect
applicant selection.
Subject Choice
In choosing your Year 11 and 12 subjects we strongly advise that you:
•
select prerequisite, assumed and recommended subjects for the
tertiary courses in which you are interested; and
• choose the remainder of your Senior subjects by what you do best and
what you prefer to do.
In this way you are likely to achieve your best possible results.
Your parents, guidance officers/school counsellors or other school staff
can also help you with choosing Senior subjects.
OP Eligible Students
To be considered for admission based on an Overall Position you must
have:
• met the minimum entry requirements; and
• obtained an Overall Position (OP)
Step A
If you have satisfied the minimum entry requirements and obtained an
OP, you are considered for entry to your selected tertiary course in order
of OP — remember that OP band 1 is the highest and will therefore be
considered before OP band 2, and so on.
All applicants who fall into an OP band above the minimum cut-off
point for a particular course will be offered a place in that course (see the
‘Selection example’ below). OP cut-offs are not predetermined and vary
depending on the number of applicants for a course, the applicants OPs/
QTAC selection ranks and the number of places available in the course.
See ‘OP cut-offs explanatory note’ on this page for more information.
Step B
If the number of places in a course dictates that not all applicants within
an OP band can be made an offer, as the ‘Selection example’ below shows,
then selection within the OP will be based on Field Positions. See ‘Use of
Field Positions’ in the next column.
Step C
In rare cases, even after Field Positions have been considered, it can
happen that more information is needed to differentiate between students
with the same OP applying to courses that are highly competitive.
In these instances a further step may be used. Depending on the
institution, this could include using any of the following: level of
achievement in prerequisite subjects; school reports or additional
information supplied by the applicant; the Australian Tertiary Admission
Rank (previously known as Interstate Transfer Index); or individual results
from the Queensland Core Skills Test.
Selection example
The table below is a fictional example presenting students who want to
study Law at ‘Roma University’. There are 150 places available (that is the
Course Quota) and 225 students have applied for places in the course.
Twenty-five applicants have an OP 1, 100 have an OP 2, and a further
100 have an OP 3. Based on this scenario, the table shows how students
are actually selected. It also shows at what point, and how, Field Positions
become important in selecting students to courses.

applicants within an
OP band

OP 1

Positions are used in
selection, see 'Use
of Field Positions'
following
Total applicants =

75 applicants with OP
3 do not receive an

Total offers = 150
Any guide to OP cut-offs you may use, such as that on the QTAC website
www.qtac.edu.au or in the QTAC Guide to Tertiary Courses remains a
guide only, as actual cut-offs can only be worked out ‘on the day’.
For example, a course that shows a past cut-off of OP 3, could end up
being ‘cut off ’ at OP 2 in the year that you apply, depending on the
number of students applying for the course, the standard of their OP/
QTAC selection rank, and the number of places available in the course.
It can be seen from this that it is impossible to predict the OP cut-offs
until all the applications for a particular course have been lodged and
processed — and this only occurs well into the application period.
It is also important to remember that the cut-off only reflects the past
minimum standard and that most students entering the course received
higher OPs than the minimum.
Variables used in calculating the cut-off for each course:
Demand — the number applying for the course
Quality — the quality of those applicants (that is their OP or
QTAC selection rank)
Supply — the number of places available for the course
Use
of
Field Positions
In section 3 ‘Course Entry Requirements’, you will notice that the final
two columns in the table are headed: Fields used for Selection within
OP. These columns indicate which Field Positions, will be used for
selection to each course if the number of applicants in the OP cutoff band is too large for all candidates to be selected. See page 4 for a
description of each Field Position.
The first of the two Field Position columns shows the Primary, that is the
first, field to be used for ‘finer’ selection of candidates with the same OPs.
The second column, showing the Secondary field, will be used only if the
first field is not fine enough (see examples below).
Example 1.
Fields used for
Selection within OP
Primary
Secondary
B
C
Using example 1, applicants with a Field Position of 1 in Field B will be
selected before those with a Field Position of 2 in Field B, and so on.
If looking at the Primary field does not prove to be fine enough then your
results in the Secondary column, in this case Field C, will be considered
next. Once again, a Field Position of 1 in Field C will be considered
before a Field Position of 2 in Field C, and so on.
In example 2, two possible fields (Field A or B) are used as alternative
Primary selectors. And in this case, for someone who has a Field Position
Example 2.
Primary
Secondary
A or B
C
of 1 in Field A and a Field Position of 2 in B, the Primary selector used
would be Field A, that is, the better of the two. If this is not fine enough,
then the Secondary field, in this case C, would be used.
Remember that applicants who fall into higher OP bands, that is in OP
bands above the minimum cut-off for a particular course, will be made
offers regardless of their results in the relevant Field Positions, as long as
they have met the minimum entry requirements.
SECTION 1
Selection for tertiary study, except in some cases where
alternative selection methods are used (such as interview or
audition), is based on your academic results as shown in the
Student Education Profile.

HOW YOU ARE SELECTED FOR TERTIARY STUDY
SECTION 1
Introduction

OP Ineligible Students
Other Roads to Tertiary Study
Students who complete Year 12 but do not qualify for an OP are still
eligible to apply through QTAC for courses. OP ineligible students
compete for places on a similar basis to OP eligible students. That is, they
must meet the minimum entry requirements before being considered for
a place based on merit. For OP ineligible students, merit is measured by
their OP Ineligible QTAC selection rank (as opposed to an OP).
Courses not requiring OPs/QTAC selection ranks
A QTAC selection rank is allocated on the basis of results in their best 20
semester units of Authority and Authority-registered subjects and VET
units of competency/modules as recorded on their Senior Statement and,
if available, their results in the Qld Core Skills (QCS) Test. A poor result
in the QCS does not have a negative effect on a student’s selection rank,
it will only be used to moderate the rank upwards.
QTAC selection ranks range from 1 (lowest) to 99 (highest). QTAC has
developed a table that provides comparisons between OPs and QTAC
selection ranks. This allows OP eligible and ineligible students to
compete for tertiary study places on an equitable basis.
Unlike OP eligible students, if differentiation between applicants is
needed at the cut-off point, Field Positions are NOT considered for OP
ineligible students. OP bands usually cover multiple selection ranks, eg
in 2009, OP 12 was comparable to a QTAC selection rank between 77 –
79, therefore differentiation can usually be obtained by selection rank, eg
applicants with a selection rank of 79 are selected before applicants with a
selection rank of 78, etc.
Points to note:
• Undertaking an OP ineligible Senior secondary school program may
make it difficult and in some cases impossible to achieve the high
ranks necessary for entry to very competitive tertiary courses.
• Students completing Year 12 with fewer than 20 semester units
of Authority and Authority-registered subjects and VET units of
competency/modules will still be eligible for a QTAC selection rank
but it will be less competitive than if they had completed 20 units.
• Students not undertaking the standard tertiary pathway, ie
being eligible for an Overall Position, may not be considered
for tertiary entry interstate and should contact the relevant
institution.
For some courses, tertiary institutions may not use an applicant’s
OP or QTAC selection rank in the determination of a tertiary offer.
Alternatively, an applicant may be selected on the basis of a portfolio
of work, audition, interview, test result, or other requirement listed in
Section 3 of this book. This scenario usually occurs within skills-based
courses such as art, music, and dance.
Applicants with qualifications in addition to OP/OP ineligible study
Some Year 12 students have qualifications in addition to Senior
results that can be used in the assessment of their application. Such
qualifications include AQF Certificate III or IV, music qualifications
like AMEB Grade 7, or study undertaken at a tertiary institution. These
qualifications will be assessed according to tertiary institution policies
and may give the student a more competitive QTAC selection rank than
awarded for their Senior study. Various Year 12 pathways to tertiary
study are shown in the diagram below.
Special admissions schemes
Most institutions also have admissions schemes to assist applicants
in special circumstances gain entry to tertiary courses. For example,
there are access and equity schemes, regional preference schemes, and
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander schemes. For more information,
visit the QTAC website or contact the institution directly.
Subject bonus schemes
Some institutions have schemes where applicants receive bonus ranks
if they passed specified subjects at school, such as languages other than
English or Maths C. For more information on these schemes visit the
QTAC website or contact the institutions directly.
Special consideration of education disadvantage
Applicants who believe they have suffered disadvantage in their academic
performance for reasons beyond their control (eg relating to equality of
opportunity, disability and health, or on compassionate grounds) may
request special consideration in their QTAC application. Should these
circumstances arise, please speak with your school guidance officer in the
first instance as they may be able to provide assistance while you are still
studying.

The QTAC selection

courses, QTAC uses
these ranks (and
whether minimum
entry requirements
have been met) to
allocate course places to
applicants. Where an
applicant has multiple
ranks, institution
policy dictates which
rank is used to allocate
a tertiary place - for
Year 12 students, it is
generally the highest
rank.
* QTAC assigns a QTAC selection rank to a qualification based on a variety of schedules and individual tertiary institution rules. Not all qualifications are
eligible for a rank and ranks for qualifications can change. Multiple ranks are not combined to give a greater score.
ADMISSIONS STATISTICS
Public Universities
Public higher education providers offer Commonwealth Supported Places
(CSP) to Australian and New Zealand citizens and holders of a permanent
visa. The Australian Government contributes towards course costs for
these students, and students pay a ‘student contribution’. While student
contributions vary between providers and courses, these must be within a
range set by the government (see table below).
Student contributions per year
Band
Student
contribution range

Band 1
humanities, behavioural science, social studies, foreign languages, visual and performing arts, education, nursing
$0 to $5310
Band 2
computing, built environment, health, engineering,
surveying, agriculture
$0 to $7567
Band 3
law, dentistry, medicine, veterinary science, accounting,
administration, economics, commerce
$0 to $8859
* Costs are indicative of band level only and will depend on the
individual subjects/electives chosen. The student contributions shown
are for first year full-time students. Student contributions are indexed
each year according to movements in the Consumer Price Index. The
2013 indicative first year costs will be available late in 2012 from the
Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations website
www.goingtouni.gov.au or on institution websites.
TAFE Queensland and Institutes of Technology
Tuition fees vary between institutes and programs. All students are
required to contribute towards the cost of their program, however,
some programs attract a government subsidy. VET FEE-HELP may be
available. FEE-HELP is available for Southbank Institute of Technology.
Private Providers
Fees for non government institutions vary between providers and
generally are not subsidised by the government. FEE-HELP is available
for some courses.
International Students
International students generally pay different study costs from domestic
students. Contact the international centre of the institution for
information.
Financial Assistance
Financial assistance may be available through income support from
Centrelink, scholarships, or through government loans (such as HECSHELP for Commonwealth supported places, FEE-HELP for selected

drawings within client specifications, safety regulations and legal requirements.
Their designs incorporate both the structural and mechanical aspects of building
within an aesthetic framework. They prepare documents detailing the building
materials and construction equipment required and interior fittings. Architects
liaise with builders and planning authorities, administer contracts and observe
and coordinate construction. They consult with other specialists as necessary
to create designs that reflect contemporary trends in society.
Architectural drafting/building design involves assisting architects in a
technical capacity. Architectural drafters/technicians produce detailed drawings
of an architect's initial sketch plans. They calculate and provide estimates of
materials, labour and completion dates based on an architect's original designs.
Architectural drafters/technicians use computers to produce their designs and
intricate drawings. They liaise with government representatives, inspect potential
building sites, and supervise the progress of construction sites in the absence
of an architect. Graduates find employment with architectural and planning
firms in the private sector, in various departments of state and federal
government,with engineering firms, and with large building corporations.
Building/construction management relates to the management and
integration of specialist workers and resources. It involves planning, organising,

A solicitor's practice takes in a great deal of documentary work ancillary to
the running of almost every other kind of business. Solicitors are frequently
called on to draw up agreements, contracts, and superannuation schemes. They
act as executors for estates of deceased persons and advise clients about the
present state of the law in particular areas. In litigation, solicitors advise,
investigate and prepare the groundwork necessary to bring the case to court.
Solicitors are entitled to argue a case in court and often do so. Sometimes,
however, they prefer to 'brief' a barrister, who is a trained advocate, to appear
on their client's behalf. While the solicitor maintains the conduct of the action,
the barrister can be called on at various times to advise, draft documents,
including the pleadings, and ultimately to appear in court on the client's behalf.
important globally as a source of food, as many wild fisheries are being exploited
beyond their sustainable yields. The major gains in production of aquatic
resources in recent years have come from increased output from aquaculture,
especially in Asia where traditional practices have been improved through modern
research and technology.
Ecotourism is concerned with the management, or recreational use for tourism,
of natural areas, modified landscapes and wildlife habitats.
Environmental management deals with the interface between business,
management and environmental science. Graduates find employment as

the natural environment. They develop and implement research programs to
ensure the preservation of soil systems.
SCIENCES
In the areas of science and technology, there are tertiary courses in the biological
sciences, earth sciences, environmental sciences, medical sciences, veterinary
science, mathematics and computer sciences, and in the physical and applied
sciences. Most extend over three years and some can be taken in conjunction
with other fields such as arts, law and business. Graduates sometimes study
longer to gain a second qualification, for example, in education or economics.
Some, especially those who hope to undertake a career in research, proceed to
higher degrees.
AVIATION/NAUTICAL SCIENCES
Aviation courses prepare graduates for employment as commercial pilots and
other careers in the general field of aviation. Commercial pilots perform charter
work, flight instruction (theory and practical), and other aerial services including

BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES
Biochemistry is concerned with the chemical processes which occur in living
organisms. It deals with the structure and properties of the chemical constituents
of living matter and of compounds produced by living matter. Anatomy deals
with form and structure at other levels of organic complexity. Physiology is
concerned with the body fluids, cells, tissues and organs, and the way in which
these individual parts are integrated. A closely-related discipline is pharmacology,
the study of chemical substances which modify physiological function.
Entomology involves all aspects of insects and related forms. Main areas of
specialisation are taxonomy and morphology, applied entomology, ecology, and
medical and veterinary entomology. Parasitology deals with parasitic animals,
the diseases they cause, and the nature of the host-parasite relationship.
Biology is concerned with living things and their relationships to one another,
as well as to the physical environment. Biology is divided into zoology and
botany. Zoology deals with animal life from its single-celled form to large
animals, being concerned with the anatomy (structure), physiology (functioning),
and the behaviour and ecology of the various forms of animal life. Special studies
include aquaculture, ecology, marine biology, animal behaviour, comparative
physiology, genetics, cytology, histology, systematics, and evolution. Botany
covers all aspects of plant science: why plants grow where they do; how they
grow; and the effect of nature, animals and humans upon them. Areas of
specialisation include ecology and conservation, plant molecular biology, plant
pathology, plant physiology and biochemistry, molecular systematics, and marine
botany.
Microbiology subjects are concerned with living organisms that are microscopic
in size and their medical, veterinary, industrial, environmental, and other practical
applications and impact. Bacteriology, virology and immunology are particularly
important areas of study. The subjects are essentially biological in character, but
a good background in the physical and chemical sciences, especially biochemistry,
is important.
There are many developing interdisciplinary areas such as cell and tissue biology,
genetics and evolution, ecology and ecosystems, anatomical and physiological
bases of human movement, ethology, and microbial chemistry.
Biotechnology is a rapidly growing field which covers many aspects of science
for the development of new products and/or processes. Biotechnologists
integrate and apply knowledge from a range of scientific disciplines including
molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology,
engineering, material science, chemistry, and mathematics to create new products
of commercial, scientific, medical and social value. Biotechnology includes many
different activities including fermentation technologies for plant, insect and
mammalian cell culture, the development of recombinant organisms, and waste
remediation.
Computational biology is the application of computing to the management
of large biological datasets and the use of such information to understand
biological processes. Applications span the full range of biological investigation
from the analysis of molecular structure and function to the modelling of
complex systems such as ecosystems. Computational biology occupies a niche
at the interface between the biological and mathematical sciences.
Drug design and development/pharmaceutical chemistry involves the
design of new pharmaceutical chemicals and their availability to the community
through successive stages of synthesis, testing, formulation, and large-scale
production.
Food science, nutrition and technology studies cover the fundamental
physical, chemical and biochemical nature of foods and also the principle of
food processing. Food technologists develop, research, select, preserve, process,
package, and distribute what should be safe, wholesome, nutritional, and
appealing foodstuffs. Some food scientists choose to work on the physiology
of food, the sociology of food (cultural differentiation) and the business practice
of food manufacture, storage, distribution, and retailing. Many food scientists
work in the fields of health, nutrition, and sanitation. Food scientists also work
in formulating guidelines and regulatory statutes.
Wine science is a specialised area in the wine, brewing and food processing
industries. Graduates have a knowledge base and skills for a career in wineries,
production management, quality control, and research and development.
EARTH SCIENCES
Archaeology is the scientific study of past human activities, by discovering
and analysing their physical traces. These traces include artefacts, buildings,
campsites and shipwrecks. Evidence of environments which have been altered
less visibly are analysed on a chemical or microscopic basis. Both prehistoric
and historic societies are studied, as are human origins and evolution.
Earth resources is the study of the distribution of elements within the solid
earth, the hydrosphere and the atmosphere, and the principles governing their
migration. As such, Earth resources includes disciplines as diverse as mining
and exploration geochemistry and environmental science. It involves the study
of geology, chemistry and other science subjects.
Earth science is the broad term used to describe studies of the solid earth,
the hydrosphere, and the atmosphere. It includes studies of the properties of
the Earth, the natural processes that act on both its surface and its interior, and
the history of its evolution. The numerous branches of Earth science studies
are based on applying various combinations of chemistry, physics, mathematics,
computing, or biology to Earth systems. The boundaries between the branches
commonly overlap. Earth scientists (including geologists, geophysicists,
geochemists, and palaeontologists) find employment in government and private
sectors including the minerals and energy industry, civil engineering consultancies,
environmental and groundwater consultancies, and research institutions such
as CSIRO and universities.

and dynamics of the atmosphere, climate and weather patterns. Meteorologists
study specific climate change and investigate the most efficient methods of
analysing and forecasting atmospheric conditions. They analyse and interpret
atmospheric data relating to weather conditions and research and develop new
theoretical concepts.
Oceanography is divided into four main disciplines. It covers these sciences:
geological (the origin and evolution of ocean basins and margins); physical (tides,
waves, currents and their physical interactions); chemical (the chemistry of sea
water and how sea water interacts with biological aspects of the ocean
environment); and biological (life in the oceans, productivity and habitats).

these systems in regard to their degradation, rehabilitation and conservation.
They assess the impact of agricultural, rural and urban developments on air, soil
and water systems and attempt to minimise these impacts.
understanding how and why human movement occurs, the adaptations to
movement which occur with training, and changes in movement which result
from disorders, maturation and ageing. Biological perspectives on human
movement provide a basis for a wide range of professions in the areas of sport
and exercise science, health promotion and health and physical education.
Coastal management involves analysing, assessing and monitoring coastal
habitats and water quality in both estuaries and inshore areas. Areas of critical
importance include marine ecosystems, coastal ecosystems, aquatic ecosystems,
and coastal protected areas. Studies also include restoration and repair of critically
damaged areas.
Medical radiation technology is divided into two strands. Medical imaging
technology involves the use of x-rays, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and other
modalities in the production of images to facilitate the diagnosis and subsequent
management of disease and injury. Radiotherapy technology involves the planning
and use of ionising radiation to cure, relieve or contain disease. Technologists
Sport science assesses and analyses the human body's performance in daily
life, leisure and recreation activities, and in athletic pursuits. Sports scientists

hospitals or private practices.
Chemistry can be broadly divided into four areas: organic chemistry, concerned
Industrial chemistry is concerned with the application of chemical principles
to the chemical industry, including the acquisition, processing and analysis of
raw materials. It is also concerned with the quality control of products, computer
process control applications, and the nature of reactors and their control.
Industrial chemists understand the chemistry of industrial processes and have
the skills to operate and improve chemical plants. This field involves the study
of chemistry, industrial chemistry, computer engineering, and mathematics.
Instrumentation is concerned with the application of physics to the design
and construction of high-technology apparatus and leads to employment in
industries which seek to develop the next generation of technology.
Laser sciences involves combining a variety of theoretical and practical skills
that lead to an understanding of the fundamentals of optics, spectroscopy, the
principles of laser design and construction, the interfacing of computers and
microprocessors to laser and optical instrumentation, and the use of these
technologies to address technological challenges in the research and industrial
arena. Graduates are employed in jobs relating to the design and manufacture
of optical information systems (eg barcode scanners, text and graphics
reproduction), compact disk technologies, laser systems for industrial and
agricultural alignment functions, lasers in spectroscopic applications such as
particle sizing and atmospheric remote sensing, and lasers in medicine and
ophthalmology.
Materials science includes the development of new materials as well as the
study of existing ones including metals, minerals, glasses and ceramics, synthetic
and natural polymers, composite materials, electronic and photovoltaic materials,
crystal growth, and nano and biomedical materials. New materials are increasingly
part of everyday objects as well as high-tech devices, and materials science study
has important applications such as forensic investigation or in assessing the
condition of materials in existing structures, eg aircraft or heritage buildings.
Physics is concerned with the fundamental properties of the universe (nuclei,
atoms and molecules), and with the laws that govern their behaviour. Some
areas of specialisation are in mechanics, relativity, nuclear physics, optics,
microprocessors, geophysics, measurement and instrumentation, and radiation
physics.
VETERINARY SCIENCE
Veterinary science deals with the production, husbandry and care of animals
in health and disease. These may be food animals, companion animals and
animals in their native environment. Veterinary science provides students with
a basic training suitable to serve both groups and to work in related sciences.
More than half of the veterinary graduates are employed in private practice, the
remainder work mainly for government departments or in universities or research
institutes. Employment is also found in wildlife and conservation, in policy
planning for large companies with agricultural interests, and in developing
countries where animal agriculture is vital.

The flexible delivery course is offered part-time and involves a combination of distance education and approximately one week per teaching period of residential school on-campus
study at Townsville for some subjects. Clinical placement must be undertaken in Queensland. In practice this means from Mackay north.
For the flexible delivery option the first year is completed off campus via online learning packages, with some residential periods on campus for practical classes. Years 2, 3 and 4 are
completed on campus in Townsville. A compulsory one week (36 hour) fieldwork placement is undertaken in first year.
Students who have not completed the language that they wish to major in during Years 11 and 12 must take foundation subjects in first year. This will extend the duration of their
course.
At Mackay the course is by flexible delivery involving a combination of distance education and weekly classes at JCU Mackay Study Centre. Students undertaking the distance education
course are required to attend on-campus study at Townsville for 10 days each year.
Only first and second year of this course are available at Cairns; students continue their studies at Townsville.
