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 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 answers to geoscience questions no one else is asking in the minerals industry. Perhaps you’re pursuing advanced mineral exploration skills to gain a competitive employability edge.
What will you do?
- Attend regular classes for advanced coursework.
- Partner with an academic mentor who’ll support and encourage your intellectual development.
- Produce an extended piece of work (thesis) on a chosen topic.
