Honours Application Information

Progression to Honours

Students successfully completing the Arts Bachelor course may proceed to a one-year honours program leading to the Bachelor of Arts (Honours).


Successful completion of an Australian undergraduate degree (or equivalent) including a major in their chosen Honours area of study with a distinction grade average (75 per cent) or above in 24 points of studies in relevant discipline units at level three and an overall WAM of 75 in their completed undergraduate degree (or equivalent). For some majors, completion of specific units, or their equivalent, are also required for admission to honours. The details are provided with the requirements for each major to which this applies.

Application submission process:

Kindly submit the Honours application via My.Application Portal (Monash online application portal).The deadline to submit the Honours application for 2022 intake is 3 December 2021.

Additional note: You also need to upload 1000-word research project proposal which forms the basis for your Dissertation as well (a proposal which outlines your intended project of study for your Honours year. If your application is approved by the Honours Committee, this study will form the main Honours Dissertation which you will carry out independently under the guidance of a supervisor).

We encouraged you to make an appointment with your nominated supervisor to discuss potential project ideas. Carefully consider your research interests, and match them with the research specializations of the staff members, which are diverse. Academic Staff profiles are available in the SASS website:  https://www.monash.edu.my/sass/about/staff/academic

What happens after I apply?

You will receive an invitation email from Education Management office (Arts) regarding Arts Honours application interview session (we encourage you to cross-check your email regularly so that you won’t miss the date of the interview session).

After you have gone through the interview session (approximately after one to two weeks after the date of the interview session), the Admissions office will correspond with you about the final outcome of your Honours application.
