Honours in Chemistry

By undertaking honours in Chemistry, you will develop an understanding of the research process and your abilities to conduct independent research. You will acquire training and practice in skills such as experimental methods, problem solving, literature searching, data analysis, computing, team building, and written and oral communication.

Outcomes: Students are able to (1) undertake independent research design, data collection and data analysis; (2) communicate ideas, concepts and research findings in a succinct and effective manner via written, verbal and visual methods; and (3) work independently, think and act laterally and use their initiative to resolve issues and problems encountered during the research process..

Entry requirements: the equivalent of a UWA weighted average mark of at least 65 per cent in the Level 3 units of the Chemistry major.

Intake periods: Beginning of year only
