- About Deakin
In order to be considered for admission to an honours degree, applicants must have completed the requirements the Bachelor of Arts undergraduate degree or equivalent. Normally an applicant for Bachelor of Arts (honours) will have a mid-credit average or equivalent over the entire undergraduate degree course to be eligible for admission.
The Faculty normally expects consistent results at the grade of Distinction or High Distinction (or equivalent) in the major field of study which the student wishes to pursue at honours level, but may consider applications from students with good credit results. The major referred to must be in a discipline offered at the Honours level in Deakin University's Faculty of Arts.
Students who may not have met the above criteria but wish to undertake the honours program should seek further advice from their School Honours Co-ordinator.
In determining admission the following will be taken into account:
Honours programs are available in the off-campus study mode and on campus, at the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus and the Melbourne Burwood Campus. However not all disciplines are offered at each campus, or in off campus and on campus modes.
Applications for the Honours programs are made directly to Deakin University through the online application portal.
Early applications are encouraged. For exceptional circumstances, late applications may be considered - see list of final Application closing dates at Deakin.
The Faculty of Arts and Education requires you to provide information, additional to the application form, about your proposed thesis topic. Please contact your School honours coordinator before submitting an application.
Applicants must also supply details of two academic referees.
