All undergraduate (Bachelor) degree programmes at Newcastle University are Honours degree programmes. A degree awarded 'with Honours' is of a higher standard than one awarded without Honours (known as an ordinary or pass degree). Students may follow an Honours degree course but not be awarded Honours if their academic performance fails to reach a specified standard.
