Final year resit process

If you're a final year Undergraduate Masters or Bachelors student who failed a final year module in the August 22/23 Supplementary period, then you could potentially be permitted to retrieve these failures, if you meet the following criteria:

  1. Your attempt in the supplementary period was your ‘first’ attempt (e.g. uncapped)
  2. You were awarded extenuating circumstances in relation to your module by your School Wellbeing Team for the Supplementary period

Following the Supplementary assessment period, if you've gained enough credit to be awarded your degree classification, despite failing any module(s), then the default position of your School will be to ‘graduate’ you via marks release. This will mean you're eligible to attend the December graduation ceremony, regardless of if you have any outstanding module attempt(s) remaining. It is your responsibility to update your student record if you do not wish to graduate in December.

If you want to use the opportunity to retrieve your failed credits, this will require you to a) defer your graduation from December 2023 to 2024 and b) re-register for the 23/24 academic year, to be assessed again, either as an internal or external student, or combination of both.

For further guidance please contact your School or email
