Science Honours

Physiology

After completing the requirements for award of a Bachelor of Medical Science or Bachelor of Science a student who has majored in Physiology may be permitted to undertake a fourth honours year. This consists mainly of a research project carried out under the supervision of a member of the academic staff. A list of projects offered for the coming session will be provided on the Physiology website. Early in the course the student is required to write an extended essay based on the subject of their research, and will throughout the year attend timetabled honours sessions. Examination is mainly by thesis, with the student's performance in the laboratory and in the end-of-year public seminar being considered.

Opportunities exist to gain teaching experience by casual employment as a demonstrator in undergraduate practical classes. To qualify for entry into these honours courses you need to meet the minimum requirements of the Faculty of Science and the discipline.

All students need to apply to the discipline to be admitted to an honours year. Gaining entry into honours in Physiology is competitive - the standard you need to achieve must meet certain minimum requirements, but will also depend on the number and quality of other applicants in that year. Candidates are required to meet with the Honours coordinator before the end of semester two of the preceding year (Semester One for mid year applicants), to discuss your intentions and lodge a completed expression of interest form prior to lodging an application form with the Faculty of Science. An expression of interest form can be downloaded from the Discipline website. A copy of a completed and signed expression of interest form is the only documentation you should submit as proof of contact with the Discipline. Only those applicants who have attached a completed expression of interest and have met with the Honours coordinator before lodging their application will be approved.
