The University's award regulations allow some compensation.
Compensation: if a student has achieved good marks in all of their modules except for one module, they may have achieved the requirements for a degree or progress to the next year without undertaking reassessment. Different regulations apply for finalists and continuing students on Bachelors and Integrated Masters courses, and for students on Masters courses. The below point apply to all students who are eligible for compensation:
- Compensation will only be available in some courses and will not be allowed in courses where all modules need to be passed, for example those for professional degrees.
- Compensation will not be allowed in any module designated as core (those that must be passed to meet the learning outcomes of the course).
- A compensated module will be recorded on the students’ marks statements and transcripts with a grade of ‘compensated pass’ next to the achieved mark.
