Section 8: Signature and responsibility of person awarding credit on behalf of the SEC

    • The M103 form cannot be processed unless it is signed by a Programme Lead or Subject Coordinator (both electronic and hand written signatures are acceptable). Please also indicate where applicable a contact person for follow up queries.
    • As all student’s programmes should be subject to the same internal and external quality assurance procedures it is essential that all awards of credit are reported at an SEC and considered by an External Examiner. It is the Programme Lead’s responsibility to ensure that this takes place and that it is recorded/minuted appropriately. Each faculty should have a process in place to ensure that credit entry students are identified and reported at the first available SEC after the point of entry.  
    • Keep copies of all M103s you submit and notes on your assessment as Admissions staff or Programme Support may contact you with any queries regarding your assessment. As Programme Support process the credit after a student has been made unconditional this could be several months after you have completed the form. It is also helpful to build a resource for your subject/SEC so that credit is assessed and awarded consistently.
    • Once a student has enrolled you should check their PIP page for any error messages.
