Non-standard taught programmes

End of Session processing for programmes that do not conform to the standard academic year and/or examination periods can be effectively managed using bespoke process guides developed in consultation with Taught Student Administration (TSA) and the BIRMS team.

Which programmes are covered

Non-standard programmes can be most commonly but not exclusively characterised as one or more of the following:

  • Programmes with non-standard start dates, i.e. that do not start at the beginning of the academic year
  • Programmes with multiple or flexible start dates
  • Programmes of non-standard length
  • Programmes with modules that run across academic years
  • Programmes with modules not assessed by the exam board in the year the modules are taken
  • Programmes which have multiple exam boards, or exam boards with non-standard timing

Consultation for non-standard programmes

If you do not already have arrangements in place for your non-standard programme(s), email Mark Bowen as soon as possible attaching a completed non-standard programme questionnaire indicating any non-standard criteria that apply.

TSA/BIRMS team will then contact you to discuss your requirements.
