Studying health science (Honours)
With increasing competition in all sectors of employment, students who graduate with an Honours degree 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. You can develop and carry out research on a topic of interest, potentially leading to further academic study such as a PhD.
Graduates of the Bachelor of Health Science (Honours) take with them into clinical or research positions, the ability to implement research or quality assurance procedures in a range of topics.
Applicants must have successfully completed a Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science, Bachelor of Occupational Health and Safety, Bachelor of Oral Health, Bachelor of Podiatry or other degree of equivalent content and standing as approved by the PVC Health.
Applicants who have completed a four year degree in nutrition and dietetics, occupational therapy or physiotherapy, and have met the required standard but who have not undertaken an embedded Honours degree in those degrees as a research year, are able to apply for entry into this program. Application is made direct to the Faculty of Health.
