The Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) caters for students who have demonstrated outstanding potential in the field of science. This degree follows the Bachelor of Science degree giving you the opportunity to engage in research early in your degree by taking one advanced studies course each trimester. You’ll undertake a major research project and be individually guided and mentored by one or more of our outstanding scientific researchers. In your final year, you’ll complete an honours project in your chosen specialisation. This is the opportunity to hone your skills and demonstrate your research ability under the eyes of a seasoned science professional.
