Regulations, Assessment and Awards Manager
The Generic Award Regulations apply to students on programmes leading to the following awards:
Regulations 6 and 19
New Regulations were introduced about students’ engagement with their programme. This formalises the expectation that students will attend their programme and complete their assessments as expected, and explains the consequences of not engaging.
Regulation 15.4 and 20.4
Undergraduate students are only permitted to repeat an assessment/examination at the first available opportunity if failed/deferred modules do not exceed 60 credits.
(60 CREDIT RULE)
A student required to repeat a year of study no longer has the option of relinquishing his/her marks and receiving the marks awarded for the repeat year. All marks received during a repeat year will be capped at the bare pass mark.
If allowed to repeat assessments/examinations at the first opportunity a student must undertake all the assessments/examinations at that time (unless extenuating circumstances have been accepted). If the student does not undertake all the assessments/examinations, the opportunity will be forfeited
The conditions for allowing a student to trail a failed module into the following academic year have been changed. The student is required to have attempted all elements of the assessment for the module; the student may be permitted to trail without having gained a mark of 20% or more in the failed module (previously this was a requirement).
Regulations were expanded to clarify that the time permitted for the resubmission of a dissertation should not exceed the period for the original submission
In order to pass a module, students must attempt all elements of assessment. This brings the requirements for postgraduate taught programmes in line with undergraduate programmes.
A Postgraduate Diploma or Certificate may be awarded with a mark of Distinction where the student has a mark of 70% or more. This did not apply previously to exit awards.
Regulation 28 (Condonement)
Regulation 29.2 (Trailing Masters)
New regulation covering situation where student transfers from one partner institution to another or from a partner institution to a programme delivered here
Introduction of a requirement that student must not have exhausted all attempts at a module before choosing to substitute the failed module for another optional module
