Honours Information Session

Honours will give you a competitive advantage in your career. Most importantly, Honours will give you the first big chance to 'stretch your legs' on your very own project. It will also give you an excellent preparation for a higher degree by research (research master's, or the PhD) to further consolidate your communication and research skills, hone your project management and problem-solving ability, and make you stand out from the crowd as a future leader in your field.

As an honours student you will work one-on-one with an academic on a research project. Academics are excited about their research and take great pride in mentoring the next generation of scientists.

Honours disciplines, projects and co-ordinators

The honours program is available in most of the science areas of study listed in the Undergraduate Handbook. In special circumstances, the Dean, acting on the recommendation of the Head of School, may approve candidature embracing more than one discipline. Depending on the area of specialisation, you can begin in either semester one or semester two in any year. It is normally completed in one year of full-time study. Two years of part-time study may be available in some areas of study. Some disciplines offer a mid-year intake (limited projects available) as well as intakes at the start of each academic year.

Please refer to the tables below for full details and links to projects offered under each specialisation.
