Renewal of registration
- Subject to exceptions approved by the Dean, on the recommendation of the head of department, and in the case of distance education where the Dean formulates the stipulations that will apply, a student may not sit for an examination for the honours degree more than twice in the same module.
- A student for an honours degree must complete his or her study, in the case of full-time students, within two years and, in the case of after-hours students, within three years of first registering for the degree and, in the case of distance education students, within the period stipulated by the Dean. Under special circumstances, the Dean, on the recommendation of the head of department, may give approval for a limited extension of this period.
In calculating marks, General Regulation G.12.2 applies.
Apart from the prescribed coursework, a research project is an integral part of the study.

Studente met 'n graad in óf fisika, wiskunde, wiskundige statistiek of elektroniese ingenieurswese sal vereis word om 'n spesiale nagraadse oorbruggingsjaar te doen voordat toelating tot die honneursgraad in Bioinformatika toegestaan kan word. Toegang is addisioneel afhanklik van die beskikbaarheid van studieleier/s en/of projekte in die departement.
