AUS TO UK equivalent

Hi there,

i am looking to do an honours year in psychology, i graduated from UQ in Australia and due to covid didnt get to complete the additional honours year. I am now living in London and looking to progress with my degree but see there is no 'honours' year here that is seperate from a normal undergraduate degree.

Im wondering uf doing a post graduate diploma would be similar to an honous year in australia?

thanks :smile:

Erm, not really. Honours in the UK means taking an undergraduate degree worth 360 credits. Most 3-year undergraduate degrees are automatically honours degrees over here and so having an honours degree in the UK isn't really that special. If you want to carry on studying psychology it's probably worth reaching out to the admissions department of a few universities to see if they'd be happy to accept you on their postgraduate programmes (e.g.: masters) with your standard Australian psychology degree.
