Honours co-ordinators

Numerous Honours projects relevant to today's science discoveries are available across the spectrum of teaching disciplines within the School.

These areas include Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Genetics.

Honours is a useful qualification in its own right. You will have opportunities to develop a greater degree of understanding in your chosen field of study and receive a high level of training in a broad range of skills such as experimental methods, problem solving, literature searching, data analysis, computing, and written and oral communication.

The Honours course starts at the beginning of semester 1 each year. However please be aware that some students will need to be available a week prior to this to complete necessary external courses.


A comprehensive list of projects is provided in the Honours Project Booklet. Please contact the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry administration for a copy of the booklet.
