Students who fail to progress to the research phase of the programme may be eligible to exit the programme with an MSc, PGDip or PGCert, depending on the credits accumulated. In all such cases, DSMP6002 is regarded as Core. In such instances, the rules on Compensation, Referral and Repeat will be applied according to the Progression, Determination and Classification of Results: Postgraduate Master’s Programmes.
These regulations should be read in conjunction with the programme specification.
As a research-led University, we undertake a continuous review of our programmes to ensure quality enhancement and to manage our resources. As a result, these regulations may be revised during a student’s period of registration, however, any revision will be balanced against the requirement that the student should receive the educational service expected. Please read our Disclaimer to see why, when and how changes may be made to a student’s programme.
