External students - applying to repeat internally

If you are an external student, who is considering changing your status to internal repeat, you must talk to your tutor/supervisor in your School or Department.

How to apply

Please complete the external students application to repeat internally form and return it to your School or Department for approval.

The approved application must reach Taught Student Administration no later than Friday 6th July 2018 (for Exam Board decisions made in the main period), and Friday 14th September 2018 (for decisions made at the Supplementary Exam Board)

After approval, the form will be passed to a member of the Taught Student Administration Team who will then process the application and notify the Finance Office and your local authority (if applicable).

Fees and charges

If you become internal you will need to register for the academic session you are repeating, and to pay a pro rata tuition fee, based on the number of credits being repeated. Fee information can be found on the Student Fees website.


You will be required to attend all teaching for the modules being repeated, as well as examinations. Please note: The overall mark achieved in each module is capped at the pass mark for degree classification purposes, unless you are repeating the module due to accepted extenuating circumstances.


As a registered student, there is full access to University facilities.

Financial support

You will need to contact your Local Authority to confirm that they will continue to provide you with financial support.
