Bachelor of Science with Honours

Honors in Science is an intensive year-long program that enables students to research a topic they are passionate about. Students will have the opportunity to develop their own original project and conduct research under the guidance of a supervisor who is a specialist in the relevant field. This is the final year of undergraduate study for most students and provides an avenue into postgraduate study and improves career prospects. Students who complete an honors year can demonstrate to future employers that they have advanced science skills and the ability to manage and independently produce high-quality work.
