Hone your research skills and delve deeper into a topic that you're passionate about. Graduate with distinction. 

An honours degree involves advanced research and study in your undergraduate program. It is an enhancement to your degree that gives you the opportunity to explore a topic of interest at another level.

A common misconception is that an honours degree is awarded based solely on high grade point averages (GPA), similar to practices at the high school level. However, at the university level, honours is a distinct degree program that students must apply for. The program has additional course material, generally including an honours thesis/seminar course. To be awarded an honours degree, all requirements must be completed including meeting all GPA
