Program Overview

Programme overview

We have designed this programme with budding scientists in mind. It’s for students who want to pursue postgraduate research. From Chemistry to Computational Biology, and Ecology to Environmental Change, the 13 specialisations available in the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) span the spectrum of the sciences.

You’ll develop advanced disciplinary knowledge and relevant research skills, and you’ll undertake original research in your chosen area. Depending on how well you do in your courses, you may be able to progress straight to a PhD.


You may be able to transfer between the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours), with faculty approval.


You can also study for a Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) as a conjoint programme, which means you can take two undergraduate programmes at the same time.

What are modules?
A module is an optional grouping of three courses on a particular theme that enables you to add extra value to your degree.

You may take one or two modules in addition to your main Science subject. Completed modules will appear on your academic transcript.

What are the benefits of taking a module?
Taking a module means you can focus on a specific, skills-based area outside of your main Science subject. 

Modules allow you to develop and diversify your skill set for future employment, and could enhance your career prospects. 

How do I take a module?
It's simple – all you need to do is enrol in your first course. Once you have completed the required courses for your chosen module you will need to contact the Science Student Centre to have your module formally added to your BSc.
