University rank #801 (QS) ,
The Bachelor of Science with Honours offers students the opportunity to undertake advvanced study and research in a broad range of disciplines across the Sciences. The course prepares students for postgraduate study and establishes a sound basis for a successful future career.


This course is designed to allow well-qualified graduates to extend their studies in areas relevant to the sciences, either to improve their career prospects or to proceed to higher degree studies.

Please note that admission to Honours in Psychology is only available in Trimester 1.

The courses aims to encourage students to have an understanding that:

  • Science encompasses both a body of knowledge and a reliable process of discovery. It is founded upon the recognition of fundamental laws that make nature systematic and reproducible.
  • Scientists observe, measure, classify and perform experiments upon the natural world. They employ scientific methods to test hypotheses and use empirical evidence to support or refute their hypotheses. The natural variability, or uncertainty, inherent in the natural world, means that scientific conclusions are reliable but contestable: they may be revised or modified as new evidence emerges. Scientists are curious about the natural world, and are creative in formulating hypotheses and in designing approaches to problem solving.
  • Mathematics is used in science to model real-world systems and scientific data are often analysed using statistical methods.
  • Science operates within a paradigm of peer review and replication that provides a collective responsibility for the reliability of scientific knowledge. Scientists have a responsibility to communicate the outcomes of their work accurately and without bias to their peers and to society.
  • Science is embedded within a context that reflects both the history of scientific endeavor and the culture of present society. Scientists generate and build knowledge, develop technologies, investigate and solve problems.
