An Honours degree is a one-year specialisation related to your undergraduate study.
You can do an Honours degree in one of two ways; once you’ve completed your Bachelor degree, you can undertake an extra year of specialised study related to your degree, or you can undertake a four-year combined Bachelor and Honours degree, which you apply for via SATAC.
Studying Honours will give you a valuable qualification. Honours demonstrates your ability to undertake study at an advanced level, and will help you progress towards a higher degree by research.
If you’re not interested in further study, your Honours qualification will help your job prospects in a competitive market.
