The Bachelor of Biomedical Science honours year will comprise a project related to Biomedical Science plus associated coursework. Students may also undertake their Honours year in one of the following disciplines: biochemistry, botany, genetics, microbiology, physiology & anatomy or ecology, environment & evolution. To qualify for admission to the Honours program, students are selected based on their performance in the final year of the pass degree course, and complete their honours year by satisfying the normal criteria for Honours in their selected discipline area. Students must obtain a minimum average of 60 per cent across all of their third year subjects and obtain at least 65 per cent in subjects related to the selected Honours discipline to the value of 60 credit points. An Honours year may be taken in any of the departments contributing to the pass degree course for which they have the appropriate prerequisites, or in the interdisciplinary program Medical Science Honours. Meeting this requirement, however, does not guarantee a place in the Honours year as resources may limit the total number of places available, and students are expected to find a supervisor prior to enrolment.
