Overview

The Honours program is designed to provide students with the resources to further develop and apply their research skills and to pursue special areas of interest in depth.

This degree allows students who are interested in pursuing higher doctorate research study or advancing their preparedness to engage with industry to undertake high-level academic scholarship in a specialised area. Working one-on-one with an academic supervisor, students work to prepare an academic dissertation that serves as their personal contribution to the body of academic knowledge. In addition to opening up opportunities for further study or work placements, students have the opportunity to learn from some of the university's leading academics.
