Enhance your career prospects with Honours

The first step in realising this future is an Honours degree, in which you will participate in working on a research project.

An honours year will give you valuable professional skills, including a much deeper knowledge of your academic discipline, advanced reading, writing, and critical thinking skills, and important insight into the relationships between ongoing research and accepted professional practices.

Your honours project will give you a springboard into your chosen career as you develop advanced research, analytic and communication skills while undertaking independent research. An honours degree from the Faculty of Health Sciences can also help improve your weighted average mark (WAM) for entry into graduate programs, and a successful honours result can be a pathway to PhD study.

Honours is open to meritorious students who have attained a level of academic achievement specified by their course rules.
