Honours is a prestigious program comprising a fourth year of coursework and research after the completion of a relevant undergraduate pass degree. Students choose a topic and undertake research working with a carefully selected supervisor who provides individual guidance and academic counselling.
Honours studies may be taken as single honours (a single discipline over one year of full-time study), or combined honours (two disciplines over one year of full-time study).
