Bachelor of Science (Advanced)

Student with sea bird


If you are looking for that little bit extra in your degree, the Bachelor of Science (Advanced) (Honours) provides the same breadth of opportunities as the Bachelor of Science, with the addition of Honours Pathway Options activities. These activities are designed to extend your understanding and introduce you to concepts that are more advanced than standard course activities. For added flexibility, up to a third of your courses can be from other areas of the University, so you can tailor a program to your interests.

Career prospects

Employers are increasingly looking for graduates not only with excellent academic results, but also with good communication, interpersonal and analytical skills. Jobs are available in administrative, ecological and technological arenas, but as high quality scientists are in demand, many graduates proceed to further studies (such as at the Graduate Diploma, Masters and Doctoral level) in order to retain a competitive edge in their chosen field. Some graduates undertake specific graduate-level training in areas such as teaching, librarianship or communications to further equip themselves with particular and marketable skills.
