The results also showed that students studying theology had the fewest number of sexual partners with two while political science students had seven and those studying history had six partners.
And students doing language courses had an average of five sexual partners.
However, poor performers were likely to have a higher than average number of sexual partners.
Student union president Mark Fletcher told student newspaper Varsity, which conducted the survey, that the results were no surprise to him.
"It's obvious that the mathematicians haven't found the winning formula yet," News.com.au quoted Mr Fletcher, as saying.
"But it's good to see that doctors and nurses is still a popular game," he added.
The findings also revealed that around 25 per cent of respondents admitted on trying sado-masochism and 40 per cent said they had had a one-night stand,
However, more than 60 per cent said they had never been checked for sexually transmitted diseases.
