The University is making two changes that will affect students taking exams this summer.

  • The first change is to the academic calendar – when exams for referrals and deferrals will be held.

This means exams will start a day earlier (on Thursday 7 July) than previously stated in the academic calendar and the new times include Friday evenings.

  • The second change is to the referral threshold for students who do not pass exams or coursework.

The regulations state that if a student fails a module with an overall module mark of at least 30%, the Subject Board may decide to permit one referral in all or specified parts of the module. However, in respect of modules at Levels 3, 4 and 5, the University is removing this 30% threshold for referral eligibility. You can check which level your modules are using SRS Web if in doubt.

The Faculty Student Forum has agreed this year’s international bursary scheme.  We recognise that International experiences (placements; competitions; community projects; conferences) offer you a valuable means of obtaining skills in a different environment and culture which enhance your personal development and cv. The bursary scheme offers the chance of a contribution to the costs of international activity (maximum £500) and the committee will expect to see that you are seeking other sources of funding to your trip as well as contributing yourself.  Successful applications will be selected primarily on the basis of a) the benefit to the applicant and b) the benefit back to our Faculty through reporting your trip.  Deadline for applications is 11th March (application form attached)
