These are foundational courses, usually your first degree at university.


Honours is a 1-year course for high achieving students, typically undertaken at the end of a standard 3 year bachelor's degree. The extra year of study refines your research skills, develops specialist knowledge and provides a springboard to launch you on the path of a successful career.
