The Bachelor of Science Advanced (Honours) program is offered full-time on campus at Gold Coast and Nathan.
All courses will be in person. Students will be required to attend classes in most situations.
Students may be required to attend approximately 2-6 hours of scheduled classes per week per 10 credit points course in fourth year level theory courses.
Students also enrol in a dissertation component of the program. In the dissertation component, students are expected to be able to work independently for most of the time. The requirement for on-campus attendance is relatively flexible and unstructured. However, students will be required to meet regularly with their supervisors and on-campus attendance requirements will be discussed between supervisors and students at the start of the dissertation.
To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.
Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.
Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.
Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.
You will find opportunities in the petrochemical industry, hospitals, medical research institutes, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, environmental non-government organisations, government departments and agencies, technical sales, food and beverage industries, electricity companies, and oil and mineral exploration. You will also be qualified for higher degree by research studies and scientific research in Australia and overseas.
