Program Requirements

The Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences (Honours) requires the completion of 48 units, which must consist of:

48 units from completion of one of the following Honours specialisations:

ASTR-HSPC Astronomy and Astrophysics

BIAN-HSPC Biological Anthropology

BIOL-HSPC Biology

CHEM-HSPC Chemistry

COMP-HSPC Computer Science

EMSC-HSPC Earth and Marine Science

ENVI-HSPC Environment

For students undertaking this Honours plan, the Honours research project must be in the field of Mathematics, and must have the approval from the relevant Delegated Authority within the College of Science.

Specialisations

Elective Study

Once you have met the program requirements of your degree, you may have enough electives to complete an additional elective majorminor or specialisation.

Admission Requirements

At a minimum, all applicants must meet program-specific academic/non-academic requirements, and English language requirements. Admission to ANU is on a competitive basis as the number of places available in a program is limited. Admission to Honours is also subject to supervisory capacity and approval from the relevant Delegated Authority within the Academic College.

 

An AQF Level 7 Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences degree, or equivalent, completed within the last two years:

  • with a weighted average mark equivalent to an ANU 70 per cent calculated from the 36 units (i.e. 0.75 EFTSL) of mathematics courses, excluding 1000-level courses (i.e. introductory undergraduate courses), with the highest marks.
  • Completion of at least eight 2000- and 3000-level courses in the subject area mathematics, with at least four 3000-level courses or equivalent.
  • With the written approval of an identified supervisor for the research project.

Fee Information

All students are required to pay the Services and amenities fee (SA Fee)

The annual indicative fee provides an estimate of the program tuition fees for international students and domestic students (where applicable). The annual indicative fee for a program is based on the standard full-time enrolment load of 48 units per year (unless the program duration is less than 48 units). Fees for courses vary by discipline meaning that the fees for a program can vary depending on the courses selected. Course fees are reviewed on an annual basis and typically will increase from year to year. The tuition fees payable are dependent on the year of commencement and the courses selected and are subject to increase during the period of study.

Scholarships

ANU offers a wide range of scholarships to students to assist with the cost of their studies.

Eligibility to apply for ANU scholarships varies depending on the specifics of the scholarship and can be categorised by the type of student you are.  Specific scholarship application process information is included in the relevant scholarship listing.

The Honours plan that will augment our newly established Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences will be an elite, research-focused program for exceptional students who want to pursue

  • A career based in the quantitative modelling of the real world;

  • A research oriented career in government, commerce or industry;

  • Or postgraduate research leading to a higher degree.

Career Options

ANU ranks among the world's very finest universities. Our nearly 100,000 alumni include political, business, government, and academic leaders around the world.

We have graduated remarkable people from every part of our continent, our region and all walks of life.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Plan and engage in an independent and sustained critical investigation of a chosen research topic to generate new knowledge in an area of mathematics.

  2. Systematically evaluate relevant theory and concepts in mathematics, relate these to appropriate methodologies and evidence, and draw appropriate conclusions.

  3. Demonstrate capacity for mathematical reasoning through analysing, proving, and explaining concepts from the chosen research area.

  4. Communicate and explain complex concepts clearly and effectively to a variety of audiences.
