DESCRIPTION

Intending Honours students should first consult the Honours Coordinator and potential supervisors before the end of the final year of their undergraduate course. The Honours course starts either in the first week of February with a thesis being submitted by the end of November or in the first week of August with all requirements being completed by the end of May in the following year. The program consists of the following elements: a literature review, written and verbal exercises and a research project. Each of these has a number of teaching objectives, not all of which are assessed and used in the final award. The final award is based on an assessment of eleven objectives, six of which come from the thesis. Full information on objectives and assessment criteria are contained in a booklet which is available from the School.
