The following degrees each have an advanced coursework component and a research project and are grouped together on this page for convenience:
- Bachelor of Biomedicine (Honours) following completion of Bachelor of Biomedicine
- Bachelor of Science (Honours) following completion of Bachelor of Science
- Master of Biomedical Science - an undergraduate degree with a major in a relevant discipline with a weighted average mark of at least H3 (65%), or equivalent. This program is an alternative to the Honours to PhD pathway.
- Master of Science – following completion of Bachelor of Science
If you have not already done so, you should familiarise yourself with the structure, entry requirements, fees and scholarships and the application process for your chosen Degree.

Each of the Departments in the School runs Information Sessions for their prospective Honours and Masters students. These are advertised in the 'News and Events' section on the home pages of the Departments' websites.
These sessions include an overview of the Honours and Masters Programs and an introduction to the Research Projects available. You will be given a copy of the list of Honours and Masters projects that will be available for the coming year. In most cases, there will be honours students from the previous year who will speak of their experiences as Honours or Masters students.
Light refreshments will be available at the end of each of the sessions and there will be an opportunity to speak with potential supervisors.
