Admission Criteria

CSU Admission Policy

Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Honours)

All students originally enrol in the Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Pass Stream). Suitable students transfer into the Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Honours) at the end of the third year.

Students are normally required to hold a minimum GPA of 5.0 in their final two years of full-time equivalent study for admission into the course Honours stream. Students should note that meeting the minimum GPA of 5.0 does not guarantee an Honours place; where there are limited places available due to supervision capacity, project resourcing, or unusually high numbers of applicants, offers can be subject to a competitive ranking process.
