Students are admitted to the Bachelor of Science Honours Degree Programmes at the beginning of the Level III. Students may specialize in a subject with strong commitment to a particular discipline and it allows a student to pursue an in-depth study of the subject area.
In order to earn a Bachelor of Science Honours Degree, a student must complete a minimum of 120 credits excluding auxiliary courses in four academic levels as summarized in Table
Table: Summary of credit requirements for Honours Degree programmes
Number of credits
29 – 31
30 – 31
31 – 32
120 – 124
Note: Elective courses can be used only to satisfy the minimum credit value requirement of 120 credits.
Some of the courses offered by the other departments may be considered as comparable to respective main course units and thus would be considered to make up the minimum number of credit requirement (72 credits) of subject of specialization. Students should consult the respective department of subject of specialization for that particular degree programme before selecting such electives courses.
Eligibility Requirements to Follow the Honours Degree Programme Students who have completed all courses in Level I and Level II may apply for selection to one or more special degree programmes, provided that they have met the selection criteria.
The minimum requirements to follow the Honours degree programme are:
a. obtained a GPA of at least 2.50 from all credits.
b. obtained a GPA of at least 2.70 for all course units of the subject of specialization.
The number of students admitted to a particular Honours degree programme will be limited and decided by the department of study depending on the resources available. In case there are more number of applicants, only the most eligible candidates will be selected based on the order of rank of their GPA and on the interview.
If a student wants to revert to the general degree programme, he/she should do so before the commencement of Level IV. On the other hand, if the department of study finds that a student is unable to reach the expected standards, he/she will be requested to revert to a general degree programme.
Such a student would be eligible for the General degree if he/she has obtained the minimum requirements to be eligible for the General Degree as stipulated in the respective ‘undergraduate student guide’. In such cases the special course units followed will be considered as those from a principal subject.
