What will I learn?

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.

Program structure

The courses offered in the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) are set out in the course list. Each course is allocated a certain number of units (#). A standard full-time study load is 8 units per semester.

The Program Rules explain what is required to complete the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours). These requirements include the total number of units you need to complete in order to graduate.

Mathematics

As one of the most enduring fields of study, mathematics is essential in an expanding number of disciplines and professions. You may choose to join those mathematicians who continue to develop new mathematics for its own sake, or you may prefer to combine your knowledge of mathematics and statistics with modelling and computational skills and use the latest computer technology to solve problems in the physical and biological sciences, engineering, information technology, economics, and business. You will access an extensive range of advanced mathematics courses to gain a deep understanding of the foundations and applications of mathematics and prepare you for research within and beyond this degree.
