A Bachelor of Science with Honours enables you to gain employment in research or obtain entry into the doctoral programme.
This degree consists of both papers and a research project (dissertation). The research project is carried out in one of the research laboratories within the department. Duration of this degree is one year, full-time.
The University of Otago has recently changed this degree to a 3 plus 1 system. This means that entrance to the Honours programme occurs after you have obtained a BSc. Due to the challenging nature of this degree, the grade average is set at B+ (75–79%) for all pharmacology papers.
