PH4511 - Physical Sciences Honours Part 1 of 2
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
Available to graduates who have achieved a credit average in relevant third year subjects
in an undergraduate degree at this University and have shown an ability to apply physical
ideas to their discipline. Graduates from other universities with equivalent qualifications
will be considered for acceptance. Except with the approval of the Head of School/Associate
Dean, all subjects in a chain must be studied in consecutive teaching periods.
The Honours in Physical Sciences program is intended for students whose undergraduate
major is not in Physics, but who have a major in another science (or related) discipline
and want to carry out a project where mathematical and physical techniques can be
applied to that area. As part of the program, students will need to acquire skills
in mathematical and physics that are appropriate to the project. Most students will
also be directed to study subjects within the School at an upper undergraduate or
postgraduate level in order to obtain these skills. Students eligible to do Physics
Honours will be encouraged to take the Physics Honours option.
- ability to carry out a substantial piece of research and write a dissertation;
- ability to formulate and solve research problems;
- to understand theoretical concepts in a broad range of topics which give background
to the research project.
- assessment will be predominantly by research.
||Admission to Physical Sciences Honours
As this subject is part of a subject chain, a final
standard grade (e.g. P, C) will only be recorded
for each subject after successful completion of all
parts of the subject chain.
