Progression

At the end of each academic year your final grades will be collated and your progression will be based on how many credits you successfully pass. Below is the progression matrix for each of the years. You can find a glossary of terms at the bottom of the page.

It is also important to remember that while the University may allow you to re-enrol for a course, you need to ensure that you have funding in place for your studies. Student Finance will normally provide extra funding for you to re-take one year. So for example if you are studying a three year degree they will provide funding for a maximum of four years.

 

The table below relates to students studying at Level 3. Level 3 is normally known as the Foundation or Preparatory Year. When studying at Level 3 on a full time schedule you will normally have the chance to retake your assessment once if your first try is unsuccessful; if you fail your second attempt it is likely that your status will be terminated. 

Mode of Attendance Credits Achieved Progress Notes on Reenrolment
FT At least 90 credits passed and at least 120 credits completed. All required modules identified as ‘must pass’ in the Course Specification passed. PP Able to reenrol at Level 4 subject to having an approved full time programme
FT Cannot progress as PP but at least 30 credits passed. RL You must reenrol at Level 3 to complete the remainder of the programme; normally cannot commence Level 4 until the following year
FT Less than 30 credits passed FD Your status will be terminated unless evidence through mitigating circumstances procedures or a review of academic performance confirms that deferred assessment or further opportunities to repeat should be made available.
PTR  At least 90 passed and at least 120 completed. All required modules identified as ‘must pass’ in the Course Specification passed. PP Able to reenrol as a full time student at Level 4 subject to having approved full time programme.

The table below relates to students studying at Levels 4 or 5. Levels 4 and 5 are the first and second year of a degree respectively. When studying at Level 4 on a full time schedule you will normally have the chance to retake your assessment once if your first try is unsuccessful; if you fail your second attempt it is likely that your status will be terminated.

Level 6 is more commonly known as the final year of your degree. If you have progressed from Level 5 to Level 6 you are permitted to reenrol until you are no longer able to achieve your award; discontinuation will take place if you:

• Exceed the maximum period of registration (8 years for an undergraduate honours degree);
• Register 360 credits at Level 5 and Level 6 without completing the award. Exceptionally students may be permitted to register further modules to achieve a non-Honours degree.
• In addition, the Awards Board may receive requests to discontinue students who are making unsatisfactory academic progress under Section 8.1, Regulation 12.
