"Honours" in the United Kingdom: More than a Difference of Spelling in Honors Education
Lamb, Margaret
Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, v13 n2 p19-33 Fall-Win 2012
In this article, Margaret Lamb begins by introducing readers to her interpretation of "honours" and "honours education" and describing the experiences that have formed her perspectives on the topics she discusses. In the remainder of the article, she (1) places some characteristics of Oxford undergraduate education in a wider context of United Kingdom higher education; (2) describes some characteristics of honours across the UK; and (3) highlights some of the features of UK honours that readers of the "Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council" will most likely recognize as honors education.
