About this course

We have designed this programme with budding scientists in mind. It's for students who want to pursue postgraduate research. From Chemistry to Computational Biology, and Ecology to Environmental Change, the 11 specialisations available in the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) span the spectrum of the sciences. You'll develop advanced disciplinary knowledge and relevant research skills, and you'll undertake original research in your chosen area. Depending on how well you do in your courses, you may be able to progress straight to a PhD. You may be able to transfer between the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours), with faculty approval. You can also study for a Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) as a conjoint programme, which means you can take two undergraduate programmes at the same time. For more details about studying two degrees, see .

Course structure

You'll choose from one of the following 12 specialisations:

The programme comprises three core courses, courses from your chosen specialisation, including a research project, and some freedom to choose other courses from the Science schedules. In your first year you'll enrol in eight courses. You should include courses from your chosen specialisation, as well as a core course and other courses in the Science schedules.

In your second and third year you'll enrol in a range of more advanced courses from your chosen specialisation - as well as additional core courses, and other courses within the Science schedules to add depth to your knowledge. In your final year you'll enrol in a range of postgraduate-level courses from your specialisation, and you'll complete your own research project in collaboration with one of our researchers.
