Honours Students

The Murdoch Childrens 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 Department of Paediatrics Honours program, we also host many students enrolled through other University of Melbourne departments and students from other Universities including Monash University, Swinburne University, Latrobe University and Deakin University.

Students are encouraged to directly contact potential Supervisors to discuss student research opportunities for 2017.

Melbourne Children's Campus
Honours Program

The Murdoch Childrens 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 Childrens while doing coursework through 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.
