The Bachelor of Science Advanced (Honours) caters for students who have demonstrated outstanding potential in the field of science. This degree follows the Bachelor of Science degree, giving you the opportunity to engage in research early by taking one Advanced Studies course each trimester.
You'll undertake a major research project and be individually guided and mentored by one or more of our outstanding scientific researchers. In your final year, you'll complete an honours project in your chosen specialisation. This is the opportunity to hone your skills and demonstrate your research ability under the eyes of a leading science researcher. If you have a talent and passion for science, this is the degree for you.
Working alongside our expert academics, you will hone your practical lab skills through Advanced Studies courses in your second and third years. As part of an Honours program, your final-year major project will complete your comprehensive grounding as a researcher, helping to provide an edge when it comes to securing employment upon completing your studies. Alternatively, honours can provide a direct pathway to PhD studies.
This degree is designed to help you gain the necessary skills and experience to find work as a highly regarded researcher or academic in Australia or overseas, across a range of government and non-government sectors.
As well as opening a pathway to PhD studies, this degree may lead to opportunities in fields including biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, oil and mineral exploration, medical research, scientific and technical services, and more.
Take control of your time - This degree has intakes in Trimester 1, 2 and 3. So, whenever you're ready to study, we're ready to get you started.
