After completing a three-year degree many students go on to complete an Honours degree.  The Honours programs in the School of Chemical and Physical Sciences at Flinders consists of advanced course-work and a research project supervised by a member of the academic staff or perhaps even an industry-based research project.

The Honours year is a different and exciting experience for most students.  As well as continuing to acquire and understand existing knowledge they are working at the coalface experiencing the joys and heartaches of discovering new scientific phenomena and exploring new theoretical explanations.  They also gain experience in designing experiments to test existing theories and new hypotheses.  The wider scope that this gives to a student's view of science and problem solving is invaluable.

The Honours Information Booklet 2017 (PDF 4MB)   is now available for students interested in honours in 2017.
