Why do Honours?

Completing an honours project allows you to demonstrate to potential employers that you are:

  • a high achiever
  • committed to realising your goals
  • able to take responsibility for a project
  • able to work to a high standard.

It is also a necessary step to postgraduate research.

Your Honours

  • You take responsibility for your Honours - your supervisor will provide guidance, but you direct the project.
  • Apply skills you have learnt in your studies such as time management, management of information, project management skills (initiate, plan) and computer skills.
  • Apply the research methods and critiquing skills that you learnt in the research units you completed in third year.
  • You need to display careful planning, consistent effort and a high level of organisation.
  • Send documents to your supervisor in a timely fashion; they need adequate time to be able to read and respond to drafts of your material.
  • Discuss problems with your supervisor or the unit co-ordinators early rather than later.
