Step 1

RSVP for the Honours Info Night and start by talking to BEES academics or search under Honours projects.  Honours Info night is held in the last week of September every year.  RSVP opens from week 1 of September.  If you have missed the 2022 Info Night please click on Info Night 2022 (top of the page) to view the recording on your mobile device, works best on your mobile phone.

Step 2

Once you have a supervisor and project name confirmed, you may submit the formal Honours Application via the Science Faculty website.

Tip: If you are studying the UNSW Advanced Science program with Honours, please apply under Category B (embedded); all other applications will be under Category A (4500 Standalone and External).

Category A applications are assessed by UNSW Admissions. They will provide a list of potential applicants to the Faculty of Science within four weeks of the closing date. Schools will run final checks with the faculty and inform Admissions with eligible applicants. Eligible applicants will receive an offer from Admissions. Once an offer is made and accepted, you may begin the process of enrolment into BEES4517 (16UoC).

Eligible applicants in Category B will receive an offer directly from schools. Same timeline applies.  

The BEES Honours Moodle page will be available for students to view one week prior to week 1.  

Professional Skills Week

Week 1 of BEES Honours consists of compulsory five-day activities known as the Honours Professional Skills Week. The activities are held on campus. Confirmed schedules will be emailed to students one week before week 1. We will inform everyone should week 1 activities be changed to online due to COVID-19 restrictions.
