Honours is a fourth-year program which gives you the opportunity to draw together your previous science, biomedical or health science studies and focus your knowledge, skills and intellect on an exciting piece of original research.
Our Honours course comprises advanced coursework and a research project which are assessed via written and oral assignments, examinations, reports and presentations.
We offer a number of student research project places each year under the institute's research themes of cancer, chronic inflammatory diseases and infectious diseases.
