An Honours degree from ANU signifies a significant achievement. By adding Honours to your undergraduate degree (typically an additional year) students refine their analytical skills and research techniques, expand their academic networks and enhance their future employment and study options. Undertaking an Honours degree is an excellent way to get a deeper understanding of your chosen field and the best pathway to studying a PhD.
During Honours, students are taught by academics who are leading researchers and experts in their field, and mix with students equally committed to furthering their skills and understandings.
Honours typically involves advanced coursework and/or the completion of an academic thesis of between 10,000 and 20,000 words.
