The program aims to produce Honours graduates who are highly motivated, organised and demonstrate superior initiative.

Current students

Currently enrolled students can find Business School honours program information and application guidelines at the current students honours page.

Students who commence a Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Advanced Studies before Semester 1 2025 may be eligible to apply for an appended honours year in the Bachelor of Advanced Studies (Honours). This and other honours options will be communicated to potential candidates during your studies.

Prospective students

If you have already completed a Bachelor degree and would like to undertake Honours, entry may be permitted if you commenced your undergraduate study less than ten years ago, subject to other requirements for entry.

If Honours is not an option but you are interested in higher degree research study, you may want to consider the Master of Philosophy.
