Honours involves undertaking an additional year of study (or equivalent part-time) at the end of your bachelor's degree and incorporates a combination of coursework and a dissertation, although this may vary from school to school.
Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours)
The Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) is a rewarding program for high-achieving students, with honours taken as part of the four-year course. It features an intensive research focus, academic mentoring, extensive teamwork and communication skills development, an on-campus residency and support for an overseas study experience.
Note: The Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) should not be confused with the Philosophy major, which can be undertaken as part of either a Bachelor of Arts (including Honours) or the Bachelor of Philosophy degree.
To be eligible for admission to your chosen honours course at UWA, you must successfully complete a bachelor's degree (or equivalent) from a recognised university, demonstrating a strong academic performance in the final-year units of the major you intend to undertake.
Your degree will normally need to be completed within seven years of your starting honours (depending on the course).
The following courses are only available to re-enrolling students and certain current UWA students who are completing pre-2012 courses. Contact your Faculty Student Office to see if you're eligible to apply.
