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.
The Head of the Department must approve admission to the Honours programme in Chemistry. The BSc Honours in Chemistry (H2004Q) programme consists of eight modules and a Research Project. A BSc Degree with a major in Chemistry and at least 60% in third-year chemistry is required.
