Zoology Honours

Home » Faculties of Science » Departments » Zoology » Programmes » Zoology Honours

The Department of Zoology offers two full-time honours courses, one in Zoology and the other in Physiology. Students must be available for lectures from Monday to Friday from mid-January until the end of November.

In the Department of Zoology, it is assumed that no student should leave the University before obtaining at least four years of training (Honours). Therefore, courses are developed to run from the first year to the fourth. Since standard and competition increase gradually, all potential students cannot be accepted and therefore prospective students should apply for admission, no later than the last Friday in October of the year proceeding the study year.

Financial Aid

A number of bursaries are available, with the exact amounts depending on merit. Please see the following website or contact student finance:

Projects

In addition to various courses, each student works on a research project. Lecturers provide the various themes. Under their supervision, each student must complete the project and present it orally and as a project report. Examples of previous projects are included in the honours prospectus of each course.

Assessment

Assessments are not limited to the exam periods but are of a continuous nature, and are written at the end of each module.
