The PhB(Hons)/BSc(Hons) can be taken in three majors (Chemistry, Mathematics or Physics) and is offered as a joint single degree program by the National University of Singapore, NUS, and the College of Science and College of Health and Medicine at ANU. This highly selective program provides a challenging course of study for students who have a strong interest in and aptitude for graduate research work.
Students are admitted to this program through NUS. Places are offered to ANU students in NUS's University Scholars Program.
Students are expected to acquire a strong foundation in critical analysis and depth in the principles of each subject. They are closely involved in undergraduate research with at least 25 per cent of their graduation requirements based upon independent research.
This is a four-year, embedded Honours, research-based degree. You will spend three semesters in residence at ANU and will write your Honours thesis at NUS. Students in this degree will have their primary enrolment at NUS, spending their first three semesters there, the next three semesters at ANU and the final two semesters back at NUS.
The course of study in each major is indicated in the tables below. There is significant flexibility and you can tailor your program of study in consultation with an assigned academic mentor at your home institution, with approval from the relevant coordinator in both universities.
