About this honours pathway

An honours year in Marine Science represents the bridge between undergraduate studies (which are content-driven) and postgraduate studies (which are research-driven).

During honours, you will undertake a major research project on a specialised topic under the direction of a supervisor (and sometimes a co-supervisor), submit a thesis embodying the results of your investigation and undertake the relevant coursework.

Unit of study requirements for Honours in the area of Marine Science: completion of 36 credit points of project work and 12 credit points of coursework.
