Honours study - get an industry edge
Honours programs vary across university faculties.
They usually include a combination of a discipline development component (coursework) and a research development component (research project). The exact weighting of these components differs according to the academic discipline within which you are studying. The research project is completed in the form of a written dissertation or creative work, and can weigh 25%, 50% or 75% depending on your Faculty's requirements.
You must have attained a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5 or higher to be eligible to study at Honours level.
To help with the cost of studying there are a number of Honours scholarships as well as Student Contribution Fee (SCF) exempt places available. There are a limited number of merit-based scholarships available to Honours students.
This comprehensive study guide is designed for all students planning to study an undergraduate degree, whether they are school leavers completing Year 12 and applying through UAC / VTAC, or mature age students.
