Useful links for current honours students:
  • Honours Thesis template. Use "thesis1.tex" for one-supervisor option and "thesis2.tex" for two-supervisor option. Use "oneside" instead of "twoside" in the documentclass options if you like to print onesided thesis. You will have to use "PDF Latex" to compile the latex code.

  • Course outline / important deadlines and some tips

  • University page for undergraduate honours research
