Repeat Year - Part II

It is University policy that no student shall be given an unfair advantage over fellow students through being allowed to automatically repeat individual modules, periods of study or a whole programme of study. Exceptional permission to repeat work may be granted by relevant examination boards on the recommendations of exceptional circumstances committees. Beyond the timescales of the normal examination board processes, permission to repeat work may be granted by: the designated Pro-Vice-Chancellor, the Provost for Student Experience, Colleges and the Library, an Academic Appeal or Review Panel as defined in the chapter on Academic Appeals, the Intercalations Committee or by the Standing Academic Committee in cases where a student’s academic performance has been adversely affected by personal, health or financial problems and where such cases have been properly documented.

 

It is University policy that no student shall normally be allowed to automatically replace modules in which he or she has failed or performed poorly by taking a different module in order to achieve better marks. Exceptional permission to do so may be granted by relevant examination boards on the recommendations of exceptional circumstances committees. Beyond the timescales of the normal examination board processes, permission to repeat work may be granted by: the designated Pro-Vice-Chancellor, the Provost for Student Experience, Colleges and the Library, by an Academic Appeal or Review Panel, as defined in the chapter on Academic Appeals, the Intercalations Committee or by the Standing Academic Committee in cases where a student’s academic performance has been adversely affected by personal, health or financial problems and where such cases have been properly documented.

 

Unless you have failed the year, where you would have to appeal, if you have mitigating circumstances and you would like a repeat year to be considered, you should speak with your department in the first instance and then arrange an appointment with a Student Adviser within Student Based Services via The Base.  A statement will be required and evidence, if applicable, to support the repeat period of study.  The Student Adviser will then liaise with your Department and the Head of Student Registry, or nominee, and confirm an outcome.
