Assessment Regulations

All programmes and awards are governed by University regulations and processes that are designed to ensure they are structured, delivered and assessed in a fair, consistent and transparent way. 

For key information about how assessment is carried out, the formal steps involved in making a final award and the University's Regulations and Credit Framework that governs undergraduate programmes please see Your Guide to Undergraduate Assessment and Award Processes

The University, has  two sets of Assessment Regulations (Taught and Outgoing). 

For undergraduate students starting at the University from September 2017:

You will be on the Regulations for Taught Awards (previously known as New Regulations)

The regulations are designed to provide assessment and reassessment opportunities that are closely aligned to the academic year structure, whilst supporting your progression through your programme.

Please click here for more information on the Regulations for Taught Awards. 

For undergraduate students who started at the University before September 2017 and have continuous progression (i.e. who do not interrupt or repeat a year):

You will be on the Outgoing Assessment Regulations for Undergraduate Students.

We have carefully considered the impact of changing the regulations for students whose studies are already underway and, in line with University policy, we have limited the changes in order to avoid unnecessary disruption to your studies whilst ensuring you are not disadvantaged.
