Why choose this program?

This Honours program is designed to provide research training for students from the Griffith School of Environment who have completed the requirements of a Bachelor degree. The degree consists of research training and completion of a research project in the Griffith School of Environment. The degree will be assessed by coursework, research project performance, thesis and seminar.

Attendance information

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) is offered full-time at both the Gold Coast and Nathan campuses.

Students enrolling in the Bachelor of Science (Honours) are required to complete coursework and a dissertation.

Coursework

You are required to attend approximately 4-35 hours of scheduled classes per week per course. Classes may be held during the day and evening.

Dissertation

During your enrolment in the dissertation component of this program, it is expected that you will be able to work independently for most of the time. The requirement for on-campus attendance is relatively flexible and unstructured. However, you will be required to meet regularly with your supervisor and it is recommended that you discuss the on-campus attendance requirements with your supervisor at the start of the dissertation.

Student Income Support

From 2017, 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.
