Science Honours

Immunology

The Honours program in Immunology provides the opportunity for full-time research on a proposed project supervised by a staff member expert in that field. Experimental research, a seminar and a thesis constitute the major part of the program and of assessment. Guidance in research techniques is given in training programs covering experimental design, data analysis, written and oral communication and critical appraisal of the literature. Student contributions to this program are also assessed. In addition, a supplementary seminar program keeps students informed and abreast of wider issues in immunology.

Applying for Honours

Students are invited to apply for Honours enrolment during semester two of the year preceding Honours. Applicants should consult the Honours coordinator in the first instance. A list of possible research topics is provided, and students select projects of interest, speak with prospective supervisors and apply for permission to enrol, before the end of semester two. Within the constraints of availability, an attempt is made to assign students to the project of their choice.

General Requirements for Admission

Usually Honours candidates will have achieved a Credit in senior immunology units of study and will also have successfully completed Senior study in biochemistry, biology, cell pathology, microbiology, physiology or virology. Bachelor of Science candidates will have gained a major in Immunobiology, or a related discipline such as biochemistry, biology, cell pathology, microbiology or physiology.
