Honours program

Boost your career opportunities with a one-year research program.

An honours degree usually involves one year of study after the successful completion of a bachelor’s degree.

During honours, you select a research topic, create a reading list, conduct research into your topic and write a thesis.

This allows you to delve deeper into a subject that excites you. Possible topics are varied and flexible and you’ll be encouraged and supported by an expert supervisor during your research.

Macquarie is offering honours programs in 2017 in the following areas:

Please note that applications for these honours programs are only open to Macquarie students.

If you are interested in undertaking research training in other fields, please see the information about the Master of Research.

If you are a Commonwealth supported student you will be charged the 2017 student contribution amount for your 2017 unit enrolments according to the subject area of the unit. Please see the Macquarie Handbook for more information.

At Macquarie, the standard full time load for a bachelor (honours) degree is 24 credit points. This is equal to one Effective Full-time Student Load (EFTSL) and is used to calculate student contribution for a unit.
