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
COMP-HSPC Computer Science
EMSC-HSPC Earth and Marine Science
MEDR-HSPC Medical Research
POTE-HSPC Physics of the Earth
POPH-HSPC Population Health
SCOM-HSPC Science Communication
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.
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.

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.
