Vison Science Honours involves full-time research (with supervision) in the School of Optometry and Vision Science. The course runs over 3 terms (with no coursework) and involves developing a research hypothesis, aims and project and then undertaking the research, with supervision.
Advanced training will be provided in selected areas of vision science, emphasising understanding and application of specialised techniques relevant to the research area (for example laboratory-based, sensory/virtual reality, clinical or public heath techniques and applications).
During the Honours year, you will also research and write a literature review and research proposal, undertake an ethics application (as appropriate) and prepare a final written research thesis. You are also required to regularly attend (on-line) Vaegan Seminars and other seminars. During the Honours year, students will present their work in two research seminars in the School of Optometry and Vision Science.
Vison Science Honours students can enrol to start in either T1, T2, or T3.
