Special Honours Programme
The Special Honours Programme is designed for students with excellent academic results in the School of English. At the end of the students' first year, the School will invite a small number of students to become Special Honours candidates. Special Honours students may be Majors in English Studies, Cross-Cultural Studies in English, or Language and Communication. Selected on the basis of their academic record and tutors' recommendations, these students will be given priority in admission to advanced ENGL and LCOM courses listed in the curriculum. To complete the programme, Special Honours students are required to take an additional 12 credits in the second and third years beyond the normal requirement, which may include a research focused course, and to maintain an average grade of B+ or above in the courses that make up the 66-credit load. Upon completing the programme and meeting the Special Honours requirements, these students will be given special recognition by the School.
