Honours Degree of Bachelor of Music (Classical Voice)

Turn high-achieving into a higher degree

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 answers to questions no one else is asking in the music world. Perhaps you’re pursuing a career as a performer and want to gain a competitive edge in the industry.

Entry into honours is selective and the work at this level is challenging. You should discuss your eligibility with the Honours Convenor, then lodge an expression of interest with the Faculty of Arts.

What will you do?

  • Attend regular classes for advanced coursework.
  • Partner with an academic mentor who’ll support and encourage your musical development.
  • Present a major music project.
  • Hone your ability to write, think and communicate creatively.

Testimonial

As a music student I've made friends with first, second, and third years, and even some honours students, which has given me the opportunity to ask questions about the degree and gain knowledge from their experience. I love music humour - from teachers and students. The music staff have been absolutely incredible - they're flexible, understanding, and above all experts in their field! I'm always coming away with fantastic new knowledge that I can apply straight away.
