Honours

Boost your employability with honours in science

Be mentored by scientific experts as you immerse yourself in discipline-based research or a broader professional skills pathway.

An honours degree in science is one year of study where you concentrate on a project or area of science that interests you the most.

Both our disciplinary research and professional skills pathways:

  • Enhance your professional skills and prepare you for greater career success.
  • Include a coursework component which will help you gain the skills employers want.
  • Involve a research, industry or community related science project of your choice.
  • Can lead to further study at PhD level.
