Course summary

The Honours degree is a separate fourth year of study which may be undertaken following successful completion of an undergraduate degree. As well as a completion point for tertiary study itself, Honours also represents the starting point for entry into further postgraduate research degrees. The Honours degree provides an indication of a student’s research potential and introduces students to basic research training.

Prior to lodging an application, interested applicants must contact the University to discuss their eligibility and to find a suitable honours supervisor for their proposed honours topic. For more information refer to the Bachelor of Health and Human Sciences (Honours) Handbook.

Please note: The Bachelor of Podiatry, Bachelor of Speech Pathology, and Bachelor of Occupational Therapy, each include an embedded Honours program for eligible students, which can be studied concurrently during these Bachelor degree courses.
