Honours Students

The Murdoch Children's Research Institute is able to host Honours students in laboratory, clinical and public health research. While the majority of our Honours students are enrolled through the Honours program of the Department of Paediatrics, we also host many students enrolled through other departments of The University of Melbourne and students from other Universities including Monash University, Swinburne University, Latrobe University and Deakin University.

Students are encouraged to contact potential Supervisors directly to discuss student research opportunities.

Melbourne Children's Campus
Honours Program

The Murdoch Children's Research Institute and The University of Melbourne Department of Paediatrics, based at the Melbourne Children's Campus, have exciting and diverse research projects that encompass laboratory, clinical and public health projects. Our supervisors are leading international researchers with the time, dedication and mentoring skills to ensure students succeed in their studies and develop skills to pursue a career in research.

Conducting research at the Murdoch Children's while doing coursework through the Department of Paediatrics, all here on Campus with a large cohort of students, provides an ideal Honours experience. Mid-year intake for Honours is not available through the Department of Paediatrics.
