Excellence in teaching and research
There are few university Faculties or Schools where geologists, engineers, geneticists, earth scientists, zoologists, plant scientists, soils scientists, and ecologists work together on the big challenges that face our planet. The School of Environmental and Rural Science (ERS) is one of those rare places.

I met fantastic students from all over Australia at the same time as receiving a quality educationDane Lyddiard - PhD in Human Biology
I thoroughly enjoyed studying statistics at UNE - so much so that I chose to complete all of the statistics units offered by UNE. The delivery of content really is geared towards maximising your understanding of the topic. The lecturers encourage you to ask questions and are always happy to help in a non-judgemental way.Dominic Waters - Bachelor of Science (Genetics)
As a result of studying BOTY390, a friend and I were able to go to Gibraltar Range National Park (GRNP) and extend the known range of the Acacia beadleana, a plant currently only known from three populations in GRNP. We increased the known size of one of the populations and have plans to do further exploration.Ruth Palsson - Graduate Diploma of Science
