Why study the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours)?

If you are a high achieving student with a keen interest in science then the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) will allow you to challenge and extend yourself.

This elite four year program will provide the foundation for a research career with continuous interaction with researchers from your first year of study.

You will visit research laboratories, conduct a research project in your final year and be mentored by academics. You will interact with other high achieving students and be exposed to cutting edge technologies and discoveries to put you at the forefront of the next generation of scientists.

The program differs from the Bachelor of Science by offering courses at an advanced level and an Honours year incorporated as a standard part of your program schedule rather than as an additional component dependent on eligibility.

What you can study

The Advanced Science program at a glance:

  • access research labs and researchers even during your first year of study;
  • participate in weekly Careers in Science seminars from prominent research scientists;
  • attend special events such as field trips, conferences and a student-run symposium;
  • work on an independent research project in a research group of your choice in your second or third year;
  • develop friendships and networks with other high achieving students;
  • develop your critical thinking, writing and communication skills which are essential for a research career.
You will be able to choose your specialisation from the foundation disciplines of Biology, Biomedical Science, Chemistry, Geographical Sciences, Geological Sciences, Mathematics or Physics to suit your area of interest and you may elect to complete a minor in a secondary discipline.

For more information on what you can study in each major, please visit the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) Study Planner.
