The Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) program requirements (course list and program rules (PDF, 146KB)) set out the courses and rules you must follow to successfully complete this program.

You must also comply with UQ’s University Policies and Procedures.

Students must complete a specialisation in the program that includes the honours courses undertaken in Year 4. If you are not sure what discipline you want to complete your honours in yet, you can enrol in one or more majors in the program now, and articulate to a specialisation later in the program.

Students must complete a minimum of 4 units of advanced courses at Level 2, and 2 units of advanced courses at Level 3. Where available, these courses can be taken as part of a major or specialisation. If the major or specialisation undertaken does not include advanced courses, these must be completed as part of the program or general elective courses.
