OK
Devanshi Kotak
30:52
Will we be able to access this powerpoint anywhere?
Cristan Herbert
31:43
We'll make the PowerPoint available to all students who registered for this event
Devanshi Kotak
31:51
Thank you!
Emma Kuhl
36:51
For step 3, if we have a compulsory honours in our program, do we simply complete steps 1 and 2 by the deadlines?
Elijah
38:05
Some of the sharepoint poster links require a login, I'm wondering if that is intentional or is a mistake?
Cristan Herbert
38:25
If you want to start in T1, 2022 you just need to complete steps 1 and 2 by 29th October (but you should start looking for a supervisor now)
Elijah
38:43
an example - the link to the poster for "Translational Neuroscience Facility, Wallace Wurth Building 3SW" says "Access Denied"
Emma Kuhl
39:35
thank you Cristan
Andrew Moorhouse
39:53
Hi Elijah, here is a link to TNF. https://medicalsciences.med.unsw.edu.au/research/groups/translational-neuroscience-facility
Hsin Li
40:03
Do we have to complete our Bachelor's degree before starting honours? I only have 2 subjects left to complete next term which are free electives but I am curious if I would be allowed to start my honours concurrently whilst finishing off those 2 subjects
Hsin Li
40:23
My degree is Advanced Science, so it is an embedded honours year
Natasha Kumar
41:50
Yes you need to have completed a Bachelors degree (48 UOC) to begin Honours. If that is the case you could complete the 2 subjects in term 3 and begin Honours the following term.
Hsin Li
42:40
Thank you
Toobah Farooqi
43:19
I am an Honours student interested in taking on a Research Assistant position next year. Can I talk to the supervisors today to see if they would be interested in hiring next year? And when is the best time to begin applying to Research Assistant roles to begin early next year?
Ella Gray
43:38
Is it possible to undertake SOMS honours part time?
meagan
44:02
Hey! Do we still need to ‘apply’ for Honours if we are doing Advanced Science? Thanks!
Natasha Kumar
44:02
Yes you can do Honours part time (50% load) and complete over two years.
Cristan Herbert
44:41
Part-time Honours is possible, but you should ask potential supervisors if they are willing to take on students doing part-time projects
Jenny Wang
44:44
So in a full time load, we are expected to be at uni every day of the week?
Elijah
45:09
I noticed in some project lists there was "research assistant" with PhD, Masters and Honours position listed separately.Can research assistant positions be taken by students still undertaking their undergrad? Or do these tend to be reserved for post-grads?
Nicole Jones
45:21
Yes Jenny - that is the expectation
Bailey
45:22
Is the research we do as part of the honours program published?
Nicole Jones
45:37
work week
Jenny Wang
45:41
haha sorry I meant Monday to Friday yeah
Cristan Herbert
45:59
Yes, full time load is typically Mon - Fri (minimum expectation is 35 hours per week), but also ask your potential supervisors about their expectations also
sanaa
47:02
Is it possible to do honors in science after bachelor of nursing?
Leyla Yilmaz
47:47
How did COVID impact honours projects over the last two years? Specifically regarding the development of lab and research skills
Kumail Khan
48:10
What are scholarships like for domestic students?
Savannah O'Connell
48:12
Are there scholarships for Honours?
Hsin Li
48:16
Would a Masters in Science be more advantageous than an Honours year
Nicole Jones
49:56
HDR scholarships - require H1/H1E
Brishna Shah
50:48
What is equivalent to first class honours (H1E)?
Nicole Jones
50:57
Master in Science is 2 year degree, honours is 1 year. It would depend upon a lot of things
Bailey
51:16
Is the research we do as part of the honours program published?
Nicole Jones
51:23
H1E - would be if you did not get H1 mark, but then have a research publication
JinDa Lis{laptop}
51:24
that's a lpt of people before the covid pandemic hits
JinDa Lis{laptop}
51:47
lot I mean
Devanshi Kotak
51:50
Is it very difficult to get H1
Mary Nguyen
52:02
Are there any coursework components in the SOMS honours as seen in the neuroscience honours (e.g. NEUR4411)?
Nicole Jones
52:11
Some honours students may publish some of their work, but this is not always the case
Elijah
52:22
Amazing fishtank Cristan
meagan
53:39
Hi! Is the application process for Honours the same for BSci and Advanced Sci students? Thanks!
Katerina M
54:18
Yes can we get clarification on this q ^? thanks!!
meagan
55:37
Thanks so much
monique
55:52
Is the WAM requirement different depending on the supervisor?
Hsin Li
56:00
Does undertaking a part-time honours degree stop me from enrolling in a different degree at another university until I finish the 2 years? I am deciding between allied health and research
summer.menezes12@gmail.com
56:54
do we have to wait for a response to step 2 before submitting the application in step 3?
Devanshi Kotak
58:02
Do you have to get an approval from the supervisor
Lucy Sun
58:11
I've emailed a supervisor a few weeks ago and they haven't replied do I keep following up?
Z5257823@ad.unsw.edu.au
58:20
When can we complete intention to undertake honours for t1 2022?
Natasha Kumar
58:23
Yes Lucy, send a follow up email.
Devanshi Kotak
58:37
I think for t1 date is 29 oct
Z5257823@ad.unsw.edu.au
59:02
Can we apply anytime or is there a start date?
Natasha Kumar
01:00:01
Intention to undertake honours for T3 2021 is open now. Intention to undertake honours for T1 2022 will open mid Term3 and close Oct 29 2021. The student nucleus can give you the exact open date.
ameerelena
01:00:08
are we required to find a minimum of three potential supervisors?
Toobah Farooqi
01:00:09
Do students doing standalone programs have a graduation ceremony?
Sumyukta Garikapati
01:00:11
If we take a little over 3 years to complete our degree so we weren’t full time the whole time are we still eligible (as the slide at the beginning said a 3 year full time degree)
Hsin Li
01:00:14
When is the census date for students commencing their honours year in Term 1?
summer.menezes12@gmail.com
01:00:18
okay, thank you!
Sumyukta Garikapati
01:02:15
Thank you!
Maryanne
01:03:18
if i completed my science degree in mid 2019 is it too late to be considered to do honours? what’s the time frame i have left before i’m not allowed to complete honours anymore if there is one
Hsin Li
01:03:24
If I graduate from Bachelor of Science, how long would I be eligible to apply for Honours year? Because USYD only accepts students that have completed their degree within the last 10 years
Redmond, John Robert - redjr002
01:03:48

Jenny Wang

Natasha Kumar
