Unless Senate determines otherwise and subject to rule A.2.3,a student should have obtained at least a 60% pass in third year level Geology with a minimum of 55% per semester (or its equivalent modules at other universities). If less than 55% was obtained in third year level geology, the candidate may be subjected to an assessment of skills obtained or to re-take one of or more appropriate modules at third year level or both.
For the Honours degree in Environmental and Water Science a student must have a BSc degree in Environmental and Water Science with an average of at least 60% in the Compulsory Modules in Environmental and Water Science at 3rd year level. Students with a BSc degree in a related field can on recommendation of the Post-Graduate Committee of the Department and approval of Faculty also be admitted. These students may however be required by the Department to obtain the necessary background by attending recommended third year modules in those fields where they have poor/no training.
