Bachelors Honours

Bachelors (Honours) degrees are designed to attract the best undergraduate students into postgraduate study. An honours degree is usually worth a total of 120 points, and is completed in one year of full-time or two years of part-time study.

A completed bachelors (honours) programme (or a postgraduate diploma with a B average) is required for entry to a masters programme. Alternatively, students who perform well in the research component of their honours programme may be given the opportunity to proceed directly to a doctorate following the successful completion of their honours programme.

Please note that all regulations should be read in conjunction with the General Regulations - Bachelors (Honours) Postgraduate Degrees.
