The College of Humanities and Social Sciences offers some part-time study programmes for undergraduate degrees.
If you are interested in studying part-time, a number of our degree programmes are available for part-time study.
For the BA Humanities and Social Science you have to choose a lead subject and ensure that you have the relevant entry qualifications for that subject. For example, if you choose Chinese then you will need to have a language qualification. Subject specific requirements can be found in the online undergraduate prospectus.
Part-time students take either one or two courses a year and attend the same daytime classes as full-time students. The number of classes each week varies from course to course, but is likely to average about four per course.
In addition, time must be set aside for independent study including reading, preparation, essay writing and revision for examinations.
An Ordinary degree, which would require three years of full-time study, should normally require no less than five years and no more than eight years of part-time study.
Similarly, an Honours degree would require four years of full-time study should normally require no less than six and no more than ten years of part-time study. (For the BD, the usual minimum time is six years and the maximum is nine.)
To maintain satisfactory progress, a part-time student has to pass at least one course each year.
