Course details


Enhance your Bachelor's degree with advanced study and research in your major subject area.

Explore your area of interest in more detail and improve your career prospects with a BA(Hons). Refine your research, writing and analytical skills while expanding your knowledge.

You'll need to complete 120 points over one year, or if studying part time, over a maximum of four years.

At Honours level your learning will be more self-directed. You'll have the opportunity to do a 30-point research project and this will include designing, undertaking and reporting on a research project under supervision.

As an Honours student you'll be in smaller classes and will be able to build closer relationships with academic staff.

If you want to continue studying at an advanced level and have at least a B average in your Bachelor's degree for the subject you intend to study (or a B+ average for some subjects), then you can do a BA(Hons).

Complete a Master's

At the end of your Honours year you can apply to continue your studies to gain a Master of Arts, which you'll be able to complete in one further year of study.
