For progression to Year 4, please see the requirements listed in the Year 3 notes.
- Entry to Year 4 MEng -
Entry to Year 4 of the MEng programme normally requires an average of 55% in third year, at the first attempt. Those not achieving an average of 55% or above will be required to transfer to Year 4 of the BEng programme.
- University Progression and Graduation Rules -
In Years 3, 4 and 5 the University progression and graduation rules normally require full passes in 80 credits of courses with an overall average of 40% or more for the 120 credits of study taken in the relevant honours year.
- The Engineering Council Progression and Graduation Rules -
No more than 30 credits may be compensated for in the degree programme. The following are our rules to enable this condition to be met:
In Year 4, in order to meet the requirements of the Engineering Council, progression requires accumulated full passes in 460 credits of courses, with the remaining credits having marks in the range 30 to 39%.
- Resits for Professional Purposes -
Students NOT achieving full passes in 460 credits AND/OR whose remaining credits have results less than 30% will be required to take 'Resits for Professional Purposes' (RPPs). Compensation of any course or group of courses containing unique AHEP learning outcomes is not permitted.
For any failed courses not qualifying for compensation, students must carry out 'Resits for Professional Purposes' (RPPs).
Progression will then only be permitted once they have achieved the equivalent of full passes in at least 460 credits of courses plus a result of 30% or above in the remaining 20 credits, including passing all courses for which compensation is not permitted. However the mark obtained at the first attempt will be used to calculate the final year average and degree award.
Once Credits on Aggregate have been awarded for any course, Resits for Professional Purposes will no longer be available for that course.
