Help with MyCurriculum - Extra Credits

Frequently Asked Questions

A full-time undergraduate degree programme normally consists of 120 credit points per academic year. Some degrees require a different number of credit points to be taken and MyCurriculum takes account of this.

If you are carrying a shortfall of credits from a previous year this will also be taken account of in MyCurriculum.

In exceptional circumstances the University will allow a student to take up to a maximum of 30 extra credit points. This is called a non-standard credit load.

If you wish to take extra credits, please complete our Non-Standard Credit Load form and send to the relevant School contact.

Please note: There are risks associated with taking a higher than normal credit load and these are set out on the back of the form. Please make sure that you read these.

If the School approves your request they will make the necessary changes in MyCurriculum and tell you that this has been done. Please note: the extra credit allowance will not show in your Credit Breakdown but you will be able to select your extra course(s) if the School has told you your request for extra credits has been approved.
