This guidance should be read in conjunction with Ordinance 18. It provides the various options for final year undergraduate students who are unable to complete all the required assessment for their academic award due to extenuating circumstances.
Ordinance 18 should only be applied where the student has not completed all required assessment and it is not possible to award the qualification for which the student is registered under the University’s regulations.
1. See section 20 in the Code: ‘Extenuating circumstances’.
2. For example, a student may already have found employment which does not require an honours degree.
3. Due to severe extenuating circumstances.
4. See the University’s credit framework.
5. If a student has died before completing all required assessment for academic award then the relevant Board of Examiners may award an Aegrotat degree or classified award, as appropriate.
