Application and enrolment
You may enter the Honours Year at the beginning of either semester 1 or semester 2, and take it either full-time (for 2 semesters) or part-time (over 4 semesters).
If you are interested in starting in semester 2 it is wise to consult with a potential supervisor at the end of the previous calendar year as supervisors usually plan (both financially and logistically) for the calendar year ahead and may fully commit themselves well before the start of semester 2.
A pre-honours meeting for all interested 3rd years is held around Week 8 of each semester (this may vary from year to year). Students will be advised of the exact time and location of this meeting via announcements made on the BEES website and the BEES students mailing list. Prospective honours students are also encouraged to attend the final seminars given by honours students at the end of each semester. Details of these seminars are advertised via the BEES website and BEES students mailing list.
Once you have a firm commitment from a supervisor fill in the BEES Honours Application Form and lodge it at the BSB Student Office (Room G27). Your application will be assessed to ensure that you satisfy the entry requirements and confirm your acceptance by a supervisor. Once your application has been approved then you will be notified via email about your enrolment (late enrolments are allowed but not encouraged). Honours enrolment is completed by Alex in the BSB Student Office who will consult with you on your enrolment either in person or via email. Note that Honours students cannot self-enrol into Honours courses via myUNSW.
