Course overview

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) is designed to provide research training and to develop specialist skills and knowledge to the theoretical, ethical, evaluative and research frameworks which underpin Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics fields of study.

The course aims to provide graduates with an excellent understanding of the breadth of their discipline and an awareness of the career opportunities available. Graduates will be equipped with the skills for life long learning, an essential professional attribute in these rapidly evolving fields. 

Normally an overall level of academic performance at 70% or greater in level 3 units within the Bachelor of Science (or equivalent) is required to be eligible to join the honours program, with an alternative entry pathway to further consider relevant work experience assessed through an interview process.
