Programme specific policies

BSc Psychology in Education

The empirical dissertation is non-compensatable.

MA programmes – Planning & Communicating Research (PCR) module

All three assessed components are graded as Pass or Fail.  As there are no numerical grades the results do not form part of the average mark for the taught part of the MA programme, thus they are not covered by the compensation rules.  You must pass all three components to pass the module to be awarded an MA or Diploma.

PCR is not one of the modules that contribute to the award of a Certificate.  To be awarded a Certificate you need to pass 60 credits from your five other modules (i.e. modules where the 0-100 mark scale is used).
