School of Physical Sciences, The University of Adelaide

Physical Sciences enhance our understanding of the physical world through observations, experiments, and theory in the core disciplines of Chemistry, Earth Sciences, and Physics.  Our scientists conduct world leading research in collaboration with a wide variety of national and international universities and with cutting-edge international projects.


 We bring this research experience into the classroom and our programs equip students for a wide range of science and non-science careers.  During the course of the degree, students develop deep discipline specific knowledge as well as the skills required for graduate level employment.  Critical thinking, complex and creative problem solving, active learning, and interpersonal skills are developed through classroom, laboratory, and field experiences with academics who are committed to sharing their experience and passion for science with undergraduate and postgraduate students.
