You're considered an Australian student if you are any of the following:
Study at SA's number one university for teaching quality in the field of Science and Mathematics1.
Our mathematics and science degrees have been designed in collaboration with industry. You will learn skills that are practical and relevant to today’s working environment.
Science is concerned with the study of the nature and behaviour of the physical universe and impacts all of society through the solutions and technologies developed. Our science studies have a practical emphasis, with a focus on laboratory and fieldwork. Pick your major from areas including applied physics, biology, chemistry, environmental systems, or mathematics and statistics.
Mathematics can open doors to a wide range of careers with employers looking to solve problems and quantify and understand data. The analytical and problem-solving skills you will develop when studying maths are highly valued by prospective employers as new and improved solutions are sought to contemporary social and economic challenges. As part of your degree you will also have an opportunity to undertake an industry-based project or participate in our Maths Clinic.
If you’re interested in becoming a secondary school teacher, you can apply up-front to study one of our mathematics or science degrees plus a Master of Teaching (Secondary).
Our postgraduate Data Science degree recognises the growing specialisation and opportunities in big data.

Our School of Information Technology and Mathematical Sciences runs several research centres and one institute. We also participate in two cooperative research centres (CRCs) specialising in computing, information science and applied mathematics. In addition to research, our centres also provide consulting services to organisations, ensuring our strong links with community and industry.
UniSA’s research in the field of Mathematical Sciences, including applied and pure mathematics, is ranked well above world-class by 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA).
The skills and knowledge you develop will apply to careers in a broad range of areas, such as:
We are a globally connected university; our staff and students come from over 90 countries. We have more than 2,500 industry and professional relationships that support student internships, research and community engagement.
UniSA also has extensive research strengths and partnerships that provide a strong foundation for all our degree programs:
