Progression to the next level is a decision taken by the Examination Board of the School of Pharmacy. The following guidance incorporates some elements within the current programme specification and university regulations. Its aim is to help clarify for students the normal practice of examination boards with respect to progression.
- Students may carry one incomplete module (equivalent to 20 credit points) to the next level of the degree programme.
- Students must pass all level 1 modules before progressing to the final year of the degree programme.
- Students undertaking a placement year as part of the degree (sandwich year option) must have passed all modules in levels 1 and 2 of the programme prior to the commencement of their placement.
- Students failing resit examinations in modules with a cumulative weighting of more than 40 credit points will be required to withdraw.
- Students failing resit assessments in modules with a cumulative weighting of 40 credit points or less will be offered a repeat year.
- Students are not permitted more than 3 resit attempts at any module. Students failing a module after 3 resit attempts will be required to withdraw.
- Students will be allowed one repeat year only (where a repeat year is defined as one required to be taken by a student due to one or more failed resit examinations), unless there are mitigating reasons to allow a further repeat year to be considered.
