How do I find an honours supervisor and topic?

To find a topic for your Honours project, start by thinking about:
  • Topics that spark your interest – these could be from your undergraduate degree or workplace
  • Academic staff and their research interests
  • Look at the research listed on ECU Faculty and School websites, your potential topic may be inspired by their research strengths
  • You can find an ECU supervisor in your area of interest using our Researcher & Supervisor Database, as well as explore the diverse and exciting research projects currently being undertaken in our faculties

Note: Some schools may already have a list of available Honours projects you can select from.

Don't forget to talk to your Honours Coordinator

Your School's Honours Course Coordinator will be able to assist you to find a supervisor to inspire and guide you through your Honours journey, as well as a topic that suits your interests and ambitions.
