Our courses

To help you navigate our diverse range of study options, we have grouped our courses into five study areas. In each you will find a range of courses with information on what you'll study, practical experiences, the amazing facilities we offer to support your education, potential career opportunities, entry requirements, fees and scholarships.

We also have a range of pathway options to help you get started at University, with the potential of progressing to further study upon completion.

Research Honours:

An Australian honours degree is the standard pathway for entry into a higher research degree, providing you with the experience and skills to take on advanced postgraduate research.

These specialised degrees involve deeply investigating a research topic and writing a thesis, usually full-time over one year. Entry requirements for an honours degree vary by program.

Most honours students complete the program during an honours year, an additional year of study following completion of a bachelor's degree. Students can also complete honours 'on-course', where the honours component is embedded in the bachelor's degree over four or five years, such as our Bachelor of Pharmacy with Applied Honours.
