Concurrent studies

Normally, Honours candidates are not permitted to undertake studies in another course concurrently with their Honours enrolment.

Concurrent study is only permitted under the following circumstances:

a) Candidates in a double degree program

Students must have met the requirements for the Bachelor of Arts component of their double degree, and have completed at least 24 units (144 credit points).

You are permitted to enrol in the Arts Honours program on a full-time basis and take one unit per semester from the other degree program. Permission will only be granted if past academic performance is strong and the request is supported by the Honours Discipline Coordinator.

Students seeking to do more than one unit per semester from the other degree program will be required to undertake the Arts Honours program on a part-time basis. (See Study Load).

b) Candidates concurrently enrolled in an Arts Diploma

You are permitted to enrol in the Arts Honours program on a full-time basis and take one unit per semester in your Diploma in Languages or Diploma in Liberal Arts. However, we do advise Honours students that the Honours degree is an intensive program and that they should be aware of the time required to meet the obligations of the Honours degree, including completing coursework units and the thesis.
