    CONTENT OF PROGRAMMES OF STUDY

    3. The Regulations for each programme of study shall specify the units required of or available to candidates at each Level, and

    may specify other requirements (which may include requirements assigned no value in terms of credits) to be met by a

    candidate before successful completion of the programme of study. The availability of units specified in the Regulations for a

    programme of study is subject to the conditions as to pre-requisites and unacceptable combinations of units published on the

    authority of the Senate.

    4. A reference in a Regulation to a particular programme of study or unit does not mean that the programme or unit will

    necessarily be available in any particular session. The availability of any unit may be subject to conditions as to the minimum

    or maximum size of classes, the availability of accommodation, timetabling restraints, and, where the Regulations for a

    programme of study contain requirements satisfaction of which depends upon the provision of facilities by another institution

    or body, the agreement of that institution or body.

    5. Where a Regulation enables or requires a candidate to make a choice, the candidate’s choice requires approval. The approval

    of the Head of the Department responsible for the programme of study is required for the subject of a special topic,

    special study, dissertation, extended essay or project and, where the Regulations require a candidate to make a choice

    between units, for the candidate’s choice of units. Where the programme of study is the responsibility of more than one

    Department, the Heads of those Departments will agree on the procedure for giving such approval and publish it to candidates.

    Except where these Regulations or the Regulations for a particular programme of study provide otherwise, the choice of a unit

    as an unrestricted unit within a programme of study requires the approval only of the Head of the Department offering the unit.

ATTENDANCE OTHER THAN FOR UNIVERSITY QUALIFICATIONS

    6. A person, whether or not registered for a programme of study leading to the award of a Degree or other qualification of the

    University, may be permitted by a Head of Department on payment of the appropriate fee to attend a programme of study in

    respect of one or more units and take the examination in respect of those units on the basis that any grades and credits

    awarded may not be taken into account for the purposes of the award of any qualification of the University.

REGISTRATION FOR PROGRAMMES AND UNITS

    12. A candidate shall register for a particular programme of study and for the units the candidate proposes to complete.

    The programme of study of a full-time student, other than one repeating part of the programme of study at a

    particular Level, must be to the value of not fewer than 120 credits in a session and of not fewer than 40 credits in any

    semester. A full-time student may register for more than 120 credits in any one session only with the permission of the

    Board. Where a unit is available at more than one point in the Regulations for a programme of study, a candidate may

    only register for the unit at one such point.

    13. Except where the Regulations for a programme of study expressly so provide or special permission is given under

    arrangements approved by the Dean of the Faculty, a unit which is available at Level 1 of any programme of study

    may not be taken by any candidate at a subsequent Level.

    14. A candidate may amend the registration in respect of any semester with the consent of the Head of Department but not

    after the end of the third week of the relevant semester.

Higher Degrees, Postgraduate Diplomas and Postgraduate Certificates

    CREDITS REQUIRED FOR A MASTER’S DEGREE OR POSTGRADUATE DIPLOMA OR CERTIFICATE

    16. A candidate who is awarded 180 credits shall thereby pass the Examination for a Master’s Degree. Where the Regulations for

    a Master’s Degree make provision for a related Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate, a candidate who is awarded

    120 credits shall be eligible for the award of the Postgraduate Diploma, and a candidate who is awarded 60 credits shall be

    eligible for the award of the Postgraduate Certificate.

    17. Notwithstanding any provisions in the Regulations for a particular programme of study, the Examiners may in their discretion

    recommend that a candidate who is awarded not fewer than 150 credits be deemed to have passed the Examination for a

    Master’s Degree, and that a candidate who has been awarded not fewer than 100 credits be deemed to have passed the

    Examination for a Postgraduate Diploma, providing that

    (a) the candidate has obtained an average grade of not less than 50 and a grade or grades of not less than 40 in the elements

    of the programme of study in respect of which credits are not awarded;

    (b) in other cases, the candidate has attained a standard equivalent to that described in paragraph (a). Extracts provided for guidance on the reverse of the Add/Drop Form for 2008-2009
