As the state with the largest population, New South Wales has one of the largest range of jobs available to science graduates. Sydney is the corporate capital of Australia, meaning that there will be a high demand for graduates with scientific skills to go into banking, management and scientific consultancy. The abundant natural resources of NSW means that environmental scientists, geoscientists and biologists will also be in demand, to advise as to the best and most sustainable methods of agriculture, mining and conservation. NSW is also home to almost a third of Australia’s medical researchers (most of whom are funded by the federal government). In addition to this, the University of Sydney and the University of UNSW have some of the nation’s best scientific research facilities, in which many graduates find work.
