Honours is a fourth year (or part-time equivalent) that continues on from your undergraduate studies, creating a higher-calibre four-year qualification that allows you to specialise in an area of your choice within your discipline.
In addition to work in small seminars of high-achieving students, you will be developing and executing your own research project that addresses a topic of your own choosing in close collaboration with your own research supervisor.
Successfully completing an Honours year will allow you to finish your studies with a higher qualification, advanced skills in research and writing, specialised knowledge in a particular field, and the option of pursuing a higher research degree (MA or PhD).
