*Applicants satisfying the admission requirements will be subjected to selection criteria before being admitted into the programme.

 

With proper module planning and academic advice from the respective departments, students in these programmes would be able to fulfil both sets of major and 2nd major requirements without having to extend their candidature beyond the four years required for a single major Honours degree.

For more information regarding the respective DMPs and MMPs, including a breakdown of the modular credits to be read for both majors, please refer to the Departmental links below:
