About Honours

If you are looking to improve your career prospects, start your pathway to a PhD or further academic study, or simply indulge your passion for your field, then honours is your next step.

An honours year is a widely recognised and highly regarded additional year of undergraduate study available to you after you complete your undergraduate course. It's a unique opportunity for you to explore your research potential and put the theory from your undergraduate studies into practice.

The specialist knowledge and skills developed and applied in an honours year are highly sought after by potential employers.
