Study Environmental Sciences In Australia

State-of-the-art facilities, world-class faculty, and opportunities for fieldwork provide an enjoyable, dynamic learning environment for students in these fields. In addition, you will find both internships and summer programmes available in these fields, offering opportunities to gain valuable real-world experience in some of the most diverse ecological and environmental habitats in the world.

The flora, fauna, ecological habitats, human history and geology of Australia offer opportunities for study that are unique on our planet for their diversity. The contrasting countryside ranges from white sandy beaches to dry bush inland to the tropical rainforests. The primitive mammalian fauna, over 600 species of Eucalyptus and the Great Barrier Reef provide outstanding examples of how biological organisms have adapted to this isolated continent and its seacoast.

Possible areas for research in Australia involve seven major themes: air, land, water, biota, people, policy and technology.

Specific research groups include:

 •  Aquatic ecosystems
 •  Climate and atmospheric science
 •  Environmental technology
 •  Environmental education for sustainability
 •  Land management
 •  Marine management
 •  Nature based tourism
 •  Plant ecology
 •  Resilient regions
 •  Sustainable agriculture

A number of postgraduate qualifications including the Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma each in the specialist areas of Environmental Impact Assessment and Environmental Management are offered in Australia. Australian postgraduate research degrees include Research Masters with Training, MPhil and PhD qualifications.
