It is vital that full marks and recommendations are returned for these students, as they leave the University to return to their ‘home’ institution immediately after the end of the academic year and require a full transcript as evidence of their achievement during their time at the University of Birmingham.
Failures to return these marks promptly, especially for Erasmus students, may result in their progression being delayed on their programme of study and may jeopardise our agreements with partner institutions overseas.
Due to the need for compliance with Home Office regulations with regards to enrolling on the requisite number of credits, it is no longer expected that Affiliate students will have an agreement in place with their School to attend teaching for a module but not be required to submit any assessments or sit any exams.
If you have any students with such an agreement in place, please contact Marcelle Cobbold (firstname.lastname@example.org) before returning a mark.
The module recommendation of F (Fail) should be used for modules failed in May/June unless the student has indicated that they wish to be entered for the supplementary assessment.
ART B – Successful Completion should be entered for these students (regardless of whether all modules have been passed or not) unless they have specified that they wish to be entered for supplementary assessments, in which case a recommendation of ART C – Review should be used.
