Dean's Honours List

The Dean's Honours List recognises high achieving students (undergraduate and graduate) in the Faculty of Arts. Eligibility for inclusion is determined on the basis of a credit point weighted average in the relevant year of study in the course, with students ranked in the top 3% (undergraduate) and top 3-5% (graduate) of their course included. The list is compiled at the end of each academic year and presented in the first half of the following year. Students receive a certificate from the Dean of the Faculty of Arts at an annual presentation ceremony, and the achievement is recorded on a student’s Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) and academic transcript. In addition, each year the Bachelor of Arts Medal is presented to a completed student determined by a Faculty selection committee to be the highest achieving student across the three years of the course.

Awards ceremony

The Dean's Honours List Awards Ceremony takes place each year in May to recognise and encourage academic excellence in the Faculty of Arts and Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Each year the Ceremony also showcases a number of the 128 prizes and scholarships administered by the Faculty of Arts.
