Science Academy

The University of Adelaide’s Science Academy is for students in Years 8-12 who are passionate about science.

The Science Academy program aims to encourage students to study science. Students will develop an understanding of the relationship between high-school science subjects, university degrees and how to turn their passion for science into a career.

Participating Year 12 students will also benefit from an early provisional offer into a selected science degree* before they sit their exams.

Participating students are not required to do any additional work and all on-campus events are held outside of school hours.
