Honours Programs

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.

Other career options

We also offer professional preparation for a number of allied health professions exclusively at the postgraduate level. If you are interested in a career in rehabilitation counselling we recommend that you apply for the Bachelor of Science (Health) to progress to the two-year master's course to gain a 'right of practice' in these professions.

Alternative entry schemes

Your future doesn't necessarily have to start or end with an ATAR score. Under the universities alternative entry schemes we offer additional options – for you and us – to be involved in creating better health outcomes. It's our way of ensuring we attract the best people to maintain the ongoing creation of new knowledge, and the discoveries that will make a difference in real life.
