Bachelor of Science Advanced (Honours) - Physics

The Advanced Program, designed specifically for high achieving students, offers direct entry into Honours, unlike the normal BSc which delays selection for Honours until the completion of the third year. It offers a greater degree of flexibility in program design through the possibility of exemptions from some first year subjects; direct entry into some 200 level subjects; the opportunity to undertake individual research subjects at second, third and fourth year level; the opportunity to progress at a faster rate through the use of “fast-tracking” mechanisms; the chance to participate in various enrichment activities and to develop a close association with an appropriate member of one of the Faculty’s research teams. In the final year, all students undertake a substantial piece of supervised research in their major discipline together with other required seminar and/or coursework.

Study programs are structured on an individual basis in consultation with the Discipline Adviser. Students are required to fulfil all the normal BSc and Honours requirements and may select their major study program from any of those available from Physics.
