Did you know you could study at our Albany campus?

Down in Albany, you have the opportunity to experience a different side of Western Australia: a truly unique experience. There are many Science units offered in Albany for both undergraduate and postgraduate study abroad and exchange students. For example, you select units offered as part of the Master of Ecotourism which is featured in the video below.

What can you study?

We find that many of our incoming study abroad and exchange students choose to undertake a combination of units that cover the sciences as well other Australian-based subjects (eg. Environmental Science) that they can't study at home.

You can select from a wide range of subject areas and some units involve field work - your chance to get out of the lecture theatre and do your science while exploring the Australian outdoors! We are located close to an international biodiversity hotspot - Australia’s South West.  It’s an area of 300,000 square kms, with 13,500 kms of coastline, that’s home to 1,500+ plant species and myriad endemic mammals - lots to explore!
