We encourage students to submit their applications by 30 November rather than waiting to the final central deadline of 31 January. This maximises the chance of gaining appropriate supervision and gives adequate time to identify a topic and prepare a research proposal.


To be eligible for our Honours programs, you need to:

  • have recently graduated and have completed a major in political science, international relations, public policy or peace and conflict studies
  • have a grade point average of 5.5 or better from this major
  • secure the agreement of a supervisor for their project.

Under certain circumstances, the Head of School may waive one or more of these requirements. Please read the following instructions to Honours applicants for more details about all entry requirements.
