School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences

The School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences (SEALS) is a new school that will serve our communities by integrating environmental sciences research and teaching.

SEALS staff members are world-class academics and researchers. Many of our staff are international leaders in their fields and have key relationships with colleagues in other institutions and industries across the world. Staff members have been extremely successful in competitive research grants at a national level, and in attracting industry partnerships and funding. 

In the space of learning and teaching there have been many successes connected to the faculty, including awards that recognise innovation and creativity in education, and excellence in empowering students in the use of technologies.

Consider Environmental Science

Want to know more about environmental studies at Australian universities? This is the video for you.

Ever since you were a child, you've been fascinated by the world around you. You're still fascinated. You notice things that other people don't.

You wonder why they are the way they are, and you wonder how they'll change. Because you're more... curious. We know because we are too.

It's more than just curiosity though, isn't it? You've observed you've wondered but you're worried, too.

You want to do more to see real action to make things happen. Because you feel more... connected. We know because we do too.

One thing's for certain you're not looking to be detached. You want real experiences real places real people. You want to get your hands dirty. Because you want a career that's more... immersive. We know because we do too.

It can feel overwhelming so many problems in need of solutions but you know that means there's so many ways to make an impact. And you will make an impact. Because you're more... determined. We know because we are too.

We know better than anyone, because we live and breathe it. So look a little closer and you'll see us on every continent on earth in every industry you depend on in every environment you've imagined. Helping to understand solve repair and prevent. We are environmental scientists. And we're a lot like you.

Antarctic science collaboration

Securing Antarctica’s Environmental Future (SAEF) aims to become the world’s leading research program delivering interdisciplinary science to forecast environmental change across the Antarctic region, deploy effective environmental stewardship strategies in the face of this change and secure Antarctica as a natural reserve.
