Repeat Years

Repeat years are sometimes required by non-Honours students who have failed over 20 credits of compulsory courses or over 40 credits of optional courses. These students are identified at the Non-Honours Progression Board of Examiners meeting and must meet with the Progression Officer and Student Support to discuss their ongoing studies. This is made clear in the student’s progression notes, which are updated on EUCLID after the Progression meeting takes place.

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.

Honours students are not offered a chance to repeat the year and if they do not achieve the required number of credits to progress or achieve an award, they will receive an alternative award (Certificate of Higher Education or Ordinary degree). The only possible way Honours students can repeat a year is via a College concession as part of an interruption of studies and is a relatively rare course of action which only takes place if their circumstances merit this.

Repeat years are not possible for MSc students.
