Honours in Pathology


The Discipline of Pathology offers a number of areas of study for the degree of Bachelor of Science (Honours) or Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours). Honours is a one-year course by research normally taken at the end of your third year. It is NOT necessary to have undertaken the two Cell Pathology Units in the Discipline of Pathology to undertake an Honours year in Pathology. During the year, students are encouraged to broaden their knowledge by attending seminars in other Disciplines and in other institutions, or even by participating in national conferences.

The Honours degree is an ideal opportunity for you to gauge your interest in a future career with a research component. However, even for those who do not contemplate a research career, the possession of an Honours degree embellishes a curriculum vitae. Honours also allows closer contact with the academic and technical staff of the Discipline. Our recent Honours graduates seem to have enjoyed their year with us and we encourage them to maintain links with the Discipline in the future.
