Local students Honours Application

Local students' applications for entry into Physics Honours in semester 2, 2014 are due at the Faculty of Science office by Friday 27 June 2014. Late applications may be accepted. Please see the Faculty's webpage on Applying for Honours in the Faculty of Science for further details.

To obtain Honours in Physics it is necessary to complete a fourth undergraduate year which is devoted to the study of Physics. Students may also undertake Honours course part-time over two years (in which case the research project must be completed in two consecutive semesters), and/or start mid-year. Upon completion, a student is eligible for the award of First Class Honours, Second Class Honours (Division 1 or 2) or Third Class Honours. University Medals in Physics are awarded to the top students if the standard achieved is sufficiently high. The same course is taken by candidates for the Graduate Diploma in Science (Physics).

See General Information for instructions on how to apply for Physics Honours.
