Can you undertake concurrent studies?
Normally, Honours candidates are not permitted to undertake studies in another course concurrently with their honours enrolment.
Students may be given permission by the Faculty of Arts Honours Convenor to undertake concurrent study under the following special circumstances:
a) Candidates in a double degree program
You are permitted to enrol in the Arts Honours program on a full-time 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 area of study coordinator.
Students seeking to do more than one unit per semester from the other degree program will be required to undertake the honours program on a part-time basis. (See Study Load)
b) Candidates with incomplete bachelor’s qualification
Failure to qualify in time for honours candidature must be due to circumstances beyond your control.
You must be within 6 points of completion.
The unit of study must be in an ‘elective’ area – i.e. it will not contribute towards the honours area of study major.
You must have the support of the relevant School Honours Coordinator.
If you are in this position you must make a request, supported by the Honours Coordinator, by submitting an Application to the Honours Committee for Change of Enrolment [PDF] form.
Please submit completed applications to Arts Student Services.
