An honours program gives you the freedom to explore a research topic outside the contraints of a normal unit of study. As an honours graduate you stand out, not only having achieved academic excellence, but also demonstrating the organisational skills and commitment necessary to take a research project through to successful completion. All attributes of interest to employers! You never know, you may find your research area so interesting that you will choose to continue onto postgraduate research program.Each of our Areas of Study provides detailed honours program information.
