Bachelor of Innovation (Honours)
You're considered an Australian student if you are any of the following:
This Bachelor of Innovation (Honours) offers you the opportunity to build on your existing skills and further develop your capabilities in creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship and project/venture leadership.
Supported by academics and industry mentors, you will explore new ways of addressing problems; create prototype solutions; wrap these up into a proposed venture or change initiative; then pitch your innovation to the very leaders responsible for making change happen.
Through this rich experience, you will build a tight-knit network with your colleagues and those in industry, a fraternity that could prove invaluable throughout your lifetime.
This honours degree can only be studied full-time.
You will develop the skills, experience and mindset to be an innovator in your chosen career, whether it be in an existing enterprise, in a new venture, or in further postgraduate research studies.
You will be encouraged to work within your existing discipline, but also to take a broader and more strategic approach to problem-solving and to collaborate with other disciplines. The core of your experience will be real-world challenges hosted by partners from industry, government and civil society.
The degree is highly experiential, multi-disciplinary and industry-based. As an honours student, you will apply research methodology to develop an innovation research paper and presentation under the supervision of a UniSA researcher.
You can gain an extra qualification and broaden your career prospects by completing a Diploma in Languages.
For each course you study, you will need to allocate time for various classes such as lectures, tutorials, workshops, seminars and practicals. Plus you will need additional hours to study in your own time to complete assignments, readings and projects and contribute to online discussion forums (independent study). So as a general rule, if you are studying full-time you would need to allocate 12 – 26 hours of study when at university and 14 – 28 hours of independent study per week.
Your studies at UniSA will incorporate both practical, professionally-focused and research-based learning, so assessment types will vary. You can expect them to include:
