Honours in Life and Environmental Sciences
Honours provides an important year for learning and improving scientific skills in research design and implementation, critical thinking and data analysis, digital literacy, and scientific communication. These skills are recognised by employers as essential in the workplace and therefore can make you more employable. A Honours degree also exposes you to research of national and international significance. It can also lead to further study as a postgraduate student, undertaking Masters or PhD level research.
