Postgraduate Issues


Special Circumstances:  Please make sure you let your department(s) know of any special circumstances (medical, personal etc) which might affect your performance in Semester Two in plenty of time and BEFORE the meetings of examination boards.  You should do this by completing a “Special Circumstances Form” which you can obtain from your department, as a link from your Student Record on the Web or at the following web address  If you are ill you must provide a medical certificate.  It is much harder to get your module marks amended once they have been agreed by departmental and Senate examination boards.

Examination Timetable:  You should ensure to check the examination timetable and turn up at the right place and the correct time.  Misreading the timetable is not a valid excuse for absence and you may fail the year as a whole as a consequence.

Results:  After the Examining Board has confirmed marks, your results will appear on your Student Record after 10am on Thursday 23 June.

Summer Resit Assessments

It is essential you check your results and register your intentions if you have the option to resit any module (coursework or examination) during the Summer Resit Assessment period in August. 

Students expecting their final degree certificate must ensure their home address is correct as this will be the address used to post the degree certificate to.  Please ensure that this information is correct by no later than 20 June 2022.

You should visit your ‘Student Record’ often to make sure it is accurate and up to date. It is also important that you check your University student email account regularly as this is often our primary way of contacting you.
