Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours)

The University of Queensland

This program will provide the foundation for a research career with continuous interaction with researchers from the first year of study. Students will visit research laboratories, conduct a research project in their final year and be mentored by academics. They will interact with other high achieving students and be exposed to cutting edge technologies and discoveries to put them at the forefront of the next generation of scientists. The program differs from the Bachelor of Science by offering courses at an advanced level and an Honours year incorporated as a standard part of students' program schedule rather than as an additional component dependent on eligibility.
