Our honours degree programs provide exciting and challenging opportunities to pursue independent study in more depth than is possible with a pass degree.

Honours enables you to develop and consolidate the knowledge and skills that you acquired during your undergraduate study, with particular emphasis on using those skills in a sustained and purposeful way by conducting independent research.

You'll also have the chance to contribute to published literature in your chosen field.

The knowledge and research and technical skills that you acquire during honours will prepare you for a career in a research environment in industry or government, and for pursuing a higher degree by research qualification (Honours Class I or IIA required for progression to PhD).

Employers value highly the reliability and capacity for independent work, and the substantial report writing skills that are demonstrated by graduating honours students.
