To answer this question, we must first define what an honours degree is and what is the meaning of a general course. In the UK an honours degree is commonly known as (Hons) which typically means you study for a period of 3/4 years in an academic institution. A general degree is often referred to as a Bachelor of Science (BSc) qualification both different degrees.
What is the Difference between a BSc and a BA (Hons) Degree in the UK?
There is a huge difference between the two degrees in the UK. The BA (Hons) degree allows you to utilise your creativity and the course structure is more specific to the subject matter. However, the BSc degree is more analytical and allows you to think more critically towards issues. Visit the following link for more information: https://bit.ly/3U6U870
