Progression

Detailed progression information can be found in the relevant Year Handbooks (linked below).

Generally, undergraduate students require 120 credits at a 40% pass to progress to their next year.

In Non-Honours Years, students can resit failed courses in the August diet. If students do not achieve 120 credits (including their compulsory courses), they will be reviewed at the Non-Honours Progression Board. Students will either conditionally progress into their next year carrying the remainder credits or repeat the year. INF1A and INF1B will be core courses from 2019/20. This means that students will not be able to progress to the next year without passing these courses.

Students on joint degrees Cognitive Science BSc Hons and Computer Science and Management Science BSc Hons degree programmes have an additional hurdle for progression from Year 2 to Year 3 for their compulsory external courses.

In Honours Years, students are required to pass 80 credits at 40% and attain an average of 40% over 120 credits. Students can achieve up to 40 credits on aggregate if courses are failed. There are no core courses that are required to be passed and there are no resit exams permitted without special circumstances.

There is a higher average hurdle for MInf students in Honours Years and they need to attain an average of 55% over 120 credits to enter 4th and 5th years. They may be required to transfer degree programme if this hurdle is not met.

MSc students are required to pass 80 credits at 50% and attain an average of 50% over 120 credits to progress to the MSc dissertation. Students can achieve up to 40 credits on aggregate if courses are failed. There are no core courses that are required to be passed and there are no resit exams permitted for MSc students.
