Undergraduate Degree Requirements
A programme leading to a Bachelor’s degree requires a minimum of 120 MCs. A student will typically take about 3 years to complete such a programme. A programme leading to a Bachelor’s degree with Honours requires a student to complete a minimum of 160 MCs. It will usually take a student about 4 years to complete an Honours programme.
To achieve the required credits within 3 or 4 years as indicated above, typically a student would need to complete an average of 20 MCs per semester. Besides passing the prescribed number of modules, a student must fulfil all other requirements specified by the University and the Faculty/Department in order to graduate.
The limit on the number of Level-1000 modules to be counted towards fulfillment of graduation requirements is 60 MCs for both 120-MC and 160-MC programmes for students admitted from AY2007/08 onwards. Nevertheless, Faculties could set more stringent requirements.
Students who wish to pursue an Honours degree are generally required to complete an Honours thesis/project.
