5.How many credits do I need to progress into honours?
There is no longer any formal “Admission to Honours” process. Students are admitted to the university with the intention of completing an honours degree, and the student will progress from year to year as long as they meet the minimum criteria:
Entry to year 2 120 credits 80 credits
Entry to year 3 240 credits 200 credits
Entry to year 4 360 credits 320 credits
*NB: A student with a fail in a module which is a prerequisite to a core module in the next year of study will be required to take leave of absence and pass the failed module before progressing to the next year of study.
If there are serious progression problems, a student may be recommended to complete an ordinary degree and it should be noted that a student who chooses to proceed to the next year with only the minimum credit requirement, will have a significant workload ahead if they are to catch up.
