How to apply


Honours is a rewarding final year of undergraduate study. You'll extend your knowledge through higher-level coursework subjects and an independent research thesis as well as strengthen your research, time management, problem solving and communication skills.

Your entry requirements

To be eligible to apply for honours, you need to:

  • successfully complete a bachelor's degree (or equivalent) from a recognised university, demonstrating a strong academic performance in the final-year units of the major you intend to study
  • confirm and meet the entry requirements of your chosen honours specialisation

You do not need to confirm a supervisor or topic prior to applying, but if you have this information you can indicate it on your application.
