The sub-honours part of an Honours degree programme involves study of a number of subjects in addition to the intended specialist degree subject. Most students take four semesters of full-time study to complete it, though it is possible to do so in two semesters in subjects that offer direct second year entry, and a maximum of six semesters is allowed if necessary. The Honours entry process defines the rules for progression to the Honours part of the programme.
