Honours Programs

Our Honours programs are available to students with an excellent record in their previous undergraduate studies.

In each Honours program, students undertake higher level coursework and carry out an independent research project under the guidance of a specialist academic supervisor.

Studying Honours can:

  • provide an opportunity for more in-depth study of your chosen subject and refinement of your expertise in the field;
  • enhance your research techniques and help you develop the skills to undertake a substantial research project;
  • offer a pathway for students interested in going on to a PhD and an academic career;
  • provide a competitive edge in the job market and be an aid to faster career progression.

If you are considering further studies, an Honours degree opens the door to coursework graduate levels studies in Australia and overseas. A strong result in Honours will also gain you entry into most PhD programs in Australian and overseas.
