Advanced study options

An Honours degree equips you with highly sought after and respected skills and knowledge, giving you a competitive advantage.

With increasing competition in all sectors of employment, students who graduate with an Honours degree in health science have a distinct advantage. It is often considered by employers as an added skill and has been used by previous graduates to pursue higher positions and salaries. Honours also sets the foundations of potential for further academic study, such as a PhD, or improving your chances of gaining entry into other degrees.

You can elect to study a Bachelor of Health Science (Honours) if you achieve the required grade point average in a Bachelor of Podiatry or Bachelor of Oral Health Therapy.

As a graduate of the Bachelor of Health Science (Honours), you will take with you into clinical or research positions, the ability to implement research or quality assurance procedures. You will learn skills that are applicable worldwide in the area of research.
