I have been advised I can continue my studies but on a lower award. Why might this be?

  • If you have received a communication informing you that you can continue on a lower award, this could be due to:

    • you exceeding the number of modules you are permitted to attempt for your award, or 
    • because you have not met the progression requirements for the next stage, eg into the final year of an Integrated Masters programme.

    The Undergraduate Modular Programme Regulation B2.7 Honours Degree contains details of the requirements of an Honours degree, including the maximum number of credits that can be attempted. 

    The Postgraduate Taught Regulation B4.4 Conditions for Satisfactory Progress contains details regarding the maximum number of credits that can be attempted for each award. Please be aware of these limitations when amending your future programme.

    Please follow the guidance in the message and contact your Student Support Co-ordinator or Academic Adviser for advice.
