"It was an easy decision to come back and do honours so that I could learn in this incredible environment for another year of study. I have progressed even further as a player and am far more experienced, confident, directed and motivated as a musician."Jaime Grech, Bachelor of Music Honours - Classical Performance

 

Honours is an intensive year-long program which involves advanced coursework and research that allows you to focus on your area of expertise, after you have successfully completed a Bachelor's degree with a major in the relevant area.

Undertaking an Honours degree provides you with the opportunity to engage with a discipline you have a passion for, while developing your academic skills. Develop your research alongside our world-renowned researchers; Honours students are partnered with an academic mentor who oversees, supports and encourages student intellectual growth through the production of an Honours thesis.

Students will usually undertake honours full-time, however, in some disciplines it is possible to complete Honours over two years on account of special circumstances.

An honours degree is the prerequisite for entry to a Higher Degree by Research at the Masters and Doctorate levels.

Why study Honours?

An Honours degree can provide you with a competitive advantage in your career, or place you on track towards a PhD, however, you don't have to follow an academia path. Many of our students undertake an Honours course to fine tune their research skills, gain critical knowledge and enhance their employment opportunities. Our graduates are the most employable in South Australia. (2017 QS Graduate Employability rankings)
