Honours Degrees and Postgraduate Diplomas

The Honours degrees are undergraduate degrees that allow students to gain insight into a specialised field of study within their chosen major. Students who pursue an Honours Degree have often previously earned a normal Bachelor’s degree in their subject of interest. The Honours year or programme extends the term of the Bachelor’s degree, generally by one year. Postgraduate Diplomas, on the other hand, are specialised academic certifications that may be obtained after earning a Bachelor’s degree. They provide students with the opportunity to gain advanced knowledge and abilities in a specific sector without committing to a full Master’s or Ph.D. programme.
