Turn high-achieving into a higher degree

An honours degree is a one-year program that builds upon undergraduate study by introducing the challenge of an extended research project.

There are many reasons we encourage graduates to apply for an honours year. You might want to build the necessary foundations for postgraduate research. You could be seeking mathematical-based solutions to problems in industry, commerce, science, entertainment, or the public sector. Perhaps you’re pursuing advanced communication and research skills to gain a competitive edge in the job market.

Our researchers work at the cutting edge of science and technology and our mathematics programs are ranked in the top 150 in the world*. Our prerequisite for honours study is at least a credit standard GPA.

What will you do?

  • Attend regular classes for advanced coursework.
  • Conduct a major research project in your chosen specialisation.
  • Partner with a mentor who’ll support and encourage your progress.
