Spend significant time doing lab experimental work and undertake research throughout your studies. Study options include lasers and optics, nanotechnology, medical physics, astrophysics and more. The Bachelor of Science Advanced (Honours) (Physics) degree is offered at Queensland University of Technology.



  • Designed for high-achieving students interested in a career in science research.
  • Bypass general science units to get straight into Physics.
  • Immerse yourself in real-world research from your first year – with authentic research environments and projects.
  • Study alongside other high-achieving students, with leading QUT researchers in the labs and facilities.
  • Specialised quantitative mathematics minor to build analytical skills needed to underpin your scientific research. 

Why choose this course?

Queensland University of Technology’s new Bachelor of Science Advanced (Honours) (Physics) will give you the passport to an international research career with an internationally recognised qualification.

This course is designed for those who have a passion for scientific enquiry and seek to pursue a career in scientific research.  You’ll have successfully completed Year 12 Mathematical Methods and Physics.  By meeting these prerequisites, you’ll be able to bypass general science units to get straight into your area of passion - in this case, physics.

You'll learn the fundamental concepts of physics which seek to describe, predict and explain phenomena at all scales—from the observable universe down to subatomic particles - and you'll learn how to think about scientific concepts and solve problems like a physicist.

This course is exclusively offered to a small cohort of high-achieving, driven students.  This means you’ll receive dedicated support and opportunities, within that community of practice. You’ll study alongside other like-minded students, with leading QUT researchers in the labs and facilities; and immerse yourself in real-world research from your first year – with authentic research environments and projects. You’ll engage with the science research community and participate in QUT’s Science Research Symposium from your first year of studies – where scientific work is presented, critiqued and questioned.
