External students - applying to repeat internally

If you are an external resit student, and considering changing your registration status to internal repeat, you must firstly talk to your tutor/supervisor in your School or Department for advice.


How can I apply?

Please complete the below application form and return it to your School or Department for approval.

The approved application must reach Taught Student Administration once your marks are ratified at either a Main assessment exam board or Supplementary assessment exam board.

Upon 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, your Sponsor and your local authority (if applicable).

Will I incurr a fee as an internal student?

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

Will I need to attend teaching events?

You will be required to attend all teaching for the modules being repeated, as well as examinations/assessments.

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.

Will I have full use of University facilities?

Yes - as a registered student, you will be entitled to full access to University facilities.

Will I be entitled to any financial support?

You will need to contact your Sponsor and/or Local Authority to check if they will provide you with financial support.
