Undergraduate Students

The credit requirements for progression to the next year/level of an undergraduate degree programme and maximum period of study allowed are indicated in the General Regulations for First Degrees and any relevant Supplementary Regulations as published in the University Calendar.

Following the first half-session examinations, Registry contacts all undergraduates who are considered to be potentially “At Risk” of failing to satisfy the end of year progress requirements as a consequence of their first half-session performance and advises of action to be taken. Registry also contacts students who are “At Risk” of failing to satisfy the progress requirements following the May exam diet, advising that their case will be considered by the Students’ Progress Committee if they do not meet progress requirements at the summer resit examination diet.

Undergraduate students wishing to appeal a recommendation of termination of studies may  submit an application to the Students’ Progress Committee.

Postgraduate Students

The regulations for postgraduate study provide for the Senate to terminate a person’s candidature provided that it is satisfied that there is sufficient reason for doing so. The postgraduate Codes of Practice below detail the procedures to be followed by students who wish to appeal against any recommendation for termination of studies.
