Purpose

The primary purpose of the BSc Honours qualification is to consolidate and deepen the students’ knowledge and expertise in their respective science disciplines/fields, and to develop research capacity in the methodology and techniques of those science disciplines. BSc Honours is essentially a coursework degree of which at least 30 credits are devoted to a research project and reporting under supervision. The degree demands a high level of theoretical engagement and intellectual independence and serves as the initial science postgraduate specialisation qualification providing students with in-depth scientific knowledge and skills preparing them for research based postgraduate science study.

Admission to the Honours programme is subject to approval by the Department. A prospective candidate must have a minimum average mark of at least 60% for Pure Mathematics on the third year level and pass an entrance exam as set by the Department. Internal candidates with an average mark of at least 65% for Pure Mathematics on the third year level may be exempted from writing the entrance exam, at the sole discretion of the Department.
