Bachelor of Education Honours Program

Pursuing undergraduate research

Bachelor of Education students, across all five pathways, may apply to add Honours to their degree. Taking place during the final year of the degree, Honours gives students the opportunity to develop research skills and explore research interests, gaining practical knowledge and aiding in the transition into professional life or future studies.
