Welcome to the Faculty of Science. Here you will find a variety of resources to help support you through your honours.
Getting ready to enrol into honours? We have information to help you prepare for enrolment, whether you are continuing your studies at UWA or studying here for the first time.
Honours projects currently available
An overview of honours projects currently available in our schools and centres is available online.
Welcome back! If you enrolled in honours in semester 2 you will be required to re-enrol during the end of year re-enrolment period.
Don’t forget to check your timetable before enrolling!
Your timetable is important because you will need to attend a number of lectures, tutorials, labs, and workshops for each unit. The timetable website lets you see how your potential unit choices could be scheduled; it does not register you for classes. After enrolment you will use the online Class Allocation System (CAS) to register for classes. If you are unable to find information for your unit on CAS or the timetable, contact the Science Student Office.
If you need a refresher on how to register for classes you may find the CAS information and video guide provided by Student Services helpful.
Does your unit show as invalid? Need to change your enrolment? Defer you studies? We have enrolment information to help you.
Here are a range of online services that you will require throughout your time at UWA:

Student clubs and societies
The Faculty of Science is host to a wide variety of student-run clubs and societies. Getting involved in such clubs can greatly enrich your UWA student experience, and puts you in contact with people that share common interests and are going through a similar experience. Student clubs and societies are an excellent support network.
Volunteering is a great way to gain valuable experience, meet new people and expand your professional networks. Guild volunteering coordinates a wide range of volunteering opportunities in the local community and on UWA campus. On-campus experiences are also advertised via Current Students: Volunteering. Of particular interest, consider being a UniMentor.
Take your volunteering potential to the next level with organisations such as AIESEC or Enactus. You can travel overseas to complete a global internship, or you may choose to work on a global initiative from UWA campus.
‘Undergraduate community’ on the LMS
You will find more opportunities on the LMS under an Organisation called the 'Science Undergraduate Community.' This features ad-hoc opportunities such as discipline-specific internships, work experience, volunteering opportunities, scholarships and more as they arise. These opportunities come and go throughout the year so check this regularly and be mindful of application due dates.
