All students who need to repeat and haven’t already repeated will be given the option of Repeat Full-Time or Repeat Modular in their progression email. Some may also have the option to take a reassessment year.
You must tell Student Services which repeat option you’re choosing within 10 days of the email. Your email will advise you to discuss your options with the School and support services before making a decision. It's for you to decide which option is best for you, but we've included a brief description of the differences and how they could impact you.
You will retake the entire year, studying the full 120 credits again.
The marks you achieved this year will be wiped clean and you will start again with first attempts – this means all the marks in your repeat year will be uncapped.
If you choose this option there will be no need to take summer reassessments.
All students get an extra 'gift' year of funding in case they need to repeat, but if you have any previous years of study or have already repeated you will not have enough funding. You may be able to claim Compelling Personal Reasons to get an extra year of funding; see our 'Compelling Personal Reasons' section.
You will only repeat the failed modules, attending classes and taking assessments. You will start the modules again with first attempts so all marks in the repeat modules will be uncapped.
If you are choosing this option the university advises that you can still take any remaining assessment attempts over the summer, which could mean you have fewer modules to take next year.
Please note that you will be classed as a part-time student. This means you will not need to pay the full year’s tuition fee but this could affect your Student Finance maintenance loan. If you’d like to talk to someone about the impact of going part-time please contact ASK.
As with full repeats you will have enough funding for the tuition fees because of your 'gift' year, but if you have any previous years of study or have already repeated you will not have enough funding. You may be able to claim Compelling Personal Reasons to get an extra year of funding; see our 'Compelling Personal Reasons' section.
If you are an international student this option could have an effect on your visa, – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If you have attempts remaining in all your failed modules you may be offered a reassessment year in which to take them. You would not be attending any classes during that academic year; you would only take your remaining reassessments. Your marks would be capped, unless you have first attempts granted through ECs
A reassessment year does not count as a year of study for Student Finance funding as it is treated as taking a year out. You will not be charged any tuition fees but you also won't get any maintenance loan from Student Finance.
