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 MCRI while doing coursework through the Department of Paediatrics, all here on Campus with a large cohort of students, provides an ideal Honours experience.

For 2020 University of Melbourne Honours (commencing Feb), applications close 31 October.
