Building on the skills and knowledge developed in the bachelor's course, students completing the honours degree develop much greater depth in two of four possible areas: advanced research on a topic related to property and completion of a thesis; valuation and law; finance and investment; or development and planning.

Depending on the two areas chosen, students in this course qualify for more advanced professional work in a particular specialisation or specialisations, and are prepared for entry to a higher research degree.

Depending on the two areas chosen, students in this course qualify for more advanced professional work in a particular specialisation or specialisations, and are prepared for entry to a higher research degree. While some of the subjects included in the optional pathways are also available to bachelor's degree students, each pathway includes subjects open only to postgraduate students in graduate certificate, graduate diploma or master's courses, and each pathway also includes an independent research project.

Course aims

These advanced subjects aim to ensure that honours students develop the critical thinking, and analytic and synthetic skills needed to deal with more complex problems, and deeper knowledge about particular areas of specialisation. All honours students are required to demonstrate the ability to design and carry out independent research, using critical thinking and judgement alongside technical research skills.

Course fees

For relevant fee information, are you a Local student or International student

All students at UTS pay tuition fees to contribute towards the cost of their studies.

In 2017 all offers made to domestic undergraduate students will be for Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP), which means that the Australian government makes a substantial contribution towards the cost of your education, and you pay the balance through student contributions.

The amount you pay depends on your area of study and the number of credit points (cp) in which you enrol. At UTS 48 credit points is considered to be one Equivalent Full Time Study Load (EFTSL).

The table to the right shows the amount a student can expect to pay for one year of full-time study (1.0 EFTSL).

Students can choose to pay their student contribution upfront, or if eligible, can defer their fees through HECS-HELP.

In addition to tuition fees, students are required to pay a Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF). The purchase of textbooks and other course materials may also result in additional cost.

You can calculate your student contribution as a percentage of the amounts shown on the table.
e.g. If you are enrolled in a 6 credit point Mathematics subject, your contribution would be 6/48 x $9,050 = $1,131.
