Bachelor of Science (Honours) Nutrition and Food Sciences

Victoria University (VU)

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00124K

The aim of this program is to provide advanced study at a fourth year level which builds on the knowledge and skills developed at degree level, and to prepare students for postgraduate research by developing skills in working independently, critical analysis of information, problem-solving, devising, designing and conducting experimental work and written and oral communication. This Honours Degree by research assists students to undertake high level cognitive reasoning and communication skills to develop a clear rationale for their research project. They develop advanced technical skills in their particular field of endeavour, and apply this to solve a novel research problem. They critically analyse the literature and own research results in context of current knowledge, thus analysing these results to solve their complex research problem. Through both written and oral communication, they transmit this knowledge to peers as well as external to the institution via conferences and publications. Students complete an independent research project and are then eligible for entry into a doctoral research program.
