Overview

The core subjects taken for the BSurv(Hons) degree are identical to those taken for the BSurv. However, the total points required for a degree with Honours increases from 522 to 550 points, due to completing a research project in the final year (SURV590 - worth 40 points). (Note: BSurv Honours students are required to undertake three rather than four outside elective papers, that are necessary in the BSurv degree).  Students whose academic record is at the B+ average level for 2nd and 3rd year may apply for acceptance into the Honours Programme by registering for this programme on eVision.

A student, having completed an honours degree will have the option of being admitted to study towards a Masters degree by thesis only and, in the case of first class honours, may be admitted directly to the University’s PhD programme.
