For Domestic and those International students not required to complete the English Language Enhancement course

For the award of Bachelor of Science Advanced (Honours) [BScAdvanced(Hons)], you must successfully complete 320 credit points, made up of the core courses AND

  • 60 credit points for a major and 60 credit points of free-choice electives; or
  • 60 credit points for a major and 60 credit points for a second major; or
  • 70 credit points for the Physics major and 50 credit points of free-choice electives;
  • AND
  • 80 credit points for the final year (Honours level) courses in a maximum of two trimesters of full-time study or one full-time and two part-time trimesters of study.

You must maintain a GPA of at least 5.0 at the end of the first and second years of the program or you will be required to transfer into the Bachelor of Science (1210) at Nathan or Bachelor of Science (1018) at the Gold Coast.

You must have a GPA of at least 5.0 upon completion of Year 3 to progress to Honours in Year 4. If you do not meet this requirement (or choose not to progress to Honours in Year 4) you will exit with a Bachelor of Science Advanced.

Other program requirements

You must successfully complete:

  • no more than 100 credit points of Level 1 courses (the first digit of a course code denotes the level);
  • at least 60 credit points of Level 3 courses or higher.

Exit point

To be eligible for the award of Bachelor of Science Advanced (BScAdvanced), you must successfully complete 240 credit points as prescribed below:

  • gain 80 credit points for the prescribed first year level courses
  • gain 60 credit points for a Bachelor of Science major
  • gain 40 credit points for specific Advanced Studies courses:
  • gain 60 credit points for electives or a second Bachelor of Science major
  • complete no more than 100 credit points for first year level courses
  • complete at least 60 credit points for third year level courses.

To exit at the end of third year, you should apply for a program transfer.

Honours

Classification of Honours

This degree with Honours may be awarded in the following classes:

  • Class I Honours
  • Class IIA Honours
  • Class IIB Honours
  • Class III Honours

The class of Honours to be awarded to each student in this degree will be determined on the basis of the GPA achieved for the 80 credit points of nominated courses and a minimum percentage for the Dissertation as outlined in the Calculation of Honours Classification section of the Bachelor Honours Degree (AQF Level 8) Policy.

The 80 credit points of nominated courses are as follows:

If you do not achieve the standard necessary to be awarded Class III Honours, you will exit with the Bachelor of Science Advanced.

Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) Level and Type
