This regulation governs taught programmes leading to University awards.
It distinguishes between two types of students:
Details of awards of the University are given in Appendix 1. Details of all programme specifications for programmes under the new modular scheme studied by Category 2 students will be available shortly.
Programmes for Category 2 students studying within the new modular scheme have new module codes (e.g. ECO00001C) where the first three letters identify the department and the last letter identifies the module level. Modules with this coding carry a 40% pass mark.
Category 1 students, who are studying on programmes in the previous modular scheme, have module codes (e.g. 2010015) that carry the 35% pass mark.
Programme specifications for these programmes are available from relevant departments.
In order to qualify for such awards, students must:
(a) Meet the specified entry requirements
(b) Pursue the programme of study prescribed for the specified period of enrolment
(c) Comply with supervision, residence and attendance requirements (see 3. 2, 3. below)
(d) Meet credit requirements specified for each stage of the programme and for the final award (this applies to Category 2 students)
(e) Fulfil all other progression and programme requirements specified, including successful completion of the University online Academic Integrity Tutorial.
(f) Pay such fees or other sums as may be prescribed
(g) Meet the specified assessment and examination requirements.
Failure to meet the requirements set out in (a) to (g) above may result in a student not being permitted to progress or enter for assessments or examinations for the specified award.
