Is an honours degree like a masters degree in the states?
No. Degrees in South African Universities work as follow: You have your basic degree, followed by your honours degree, then your masters and then your PhD.
My basic degree took me 3 years and my honours 2, so I studied 5 years in total. In the Engineering department I work in, engineering students complete a 4 year basic degree, followed by a 2 year honours degree, 2 year masters degree and then the PhD which can take up to 5 years to complete.
What was the best thing that happened to you today?
I had a mocha coffee. :) I do that every Wednesday morning, and it is a great way to break the monotone of the week and to start the morning nice and relaxed. I also had a long hot shower and I am now sporting two very smooth legs. ;p
