Special information for Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours): Students who have completed an accredited Psychology major in the Bachelor of Health Sciences should apply for Honours in the Bachelor of Science (Honours) as the Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours) is no longer accredited.

External students who completed their bachelor’s degrees at other Australian universities should enroll in Bachelor of Science (Honours) or Bachelor of Arts (Honours) depending on their previous degree.

International students who are currently enrolled at the University of Sydney must complete the same steps above and also complete an International Undergraduate Student Application Form and lodge the form to the International Student Office.
