Year of Study

  • Separate lists exist for students on years 0 to 5 (years beyond 5 are included as year 5).
  • The year of study is adjusted to compensate for students who have previously taken a year out - thus dept-N-UG-3 includes students in the final year of a three year scheme together with those on the final year of a four year scheme which included an Industrial Placement.Where the lists are divided by year of study, students on a full year out (e.g. Abroad, Industrial Year, Exchange Year etc) are included as year Y (e.g. dept-N-UG-Y).
  • Taught Postgrads are all included in year 1 until they proceed to dissertation when they move to year 2.
  • UG students from abroad attending AU on exchange are classified as year of study 2.
  • The year of study is adjusted to compensate for foundation schemes - year 1 students on foundation scheme will be on year of study 0, e.g. dept-N-UG-0.
