Should there be enough local interest students would enrol in the CQUniversity’s Bachelor of Environmental Science as distance students but receive weekly tutorials for theoretical units and undertake 3-4 day intensive courses each semester in practical units that make up the program. Field work is also applicable in some of the intensive practical units.
Students with the Diploma of Conservation and Land Management or Diploma of Environmental Monitoring and Technology would receive 8 units of credit in the program, meaning they could complete their degree after two years of full time study.
