Classification

The University’s approach to classification is provided below. Details of the University’s procedure for classification are published in full in the Rules for Award.

Bachelor’s Degrees with Classified Honours

The degree classification for Bachelor's degrees with classified honours is determined according to credit-weighted average grades. The classification average is calculated by weighting years of study according to the better of a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio between programme levels 2 and 3. The School will automatically apply the ratio that results in the highest classification average. There are special rules for skills electives and for four-year programmes, and alternative arrangements for other types of undergraduate qualifications.

Integrated Degrees of Masters and Bachelor

Integrated Masters and Bachelors awards are classified according to credit-weighted average grades. The classification average is calculated by weighting years of study according to the better of 1:1:1 or 1:2:2 ratio between programme years 2, 3 and 4. The School will automatically apply the ratio that results in the highest classification average.

Taught Postgraduate Awards

Taught postgraduate awards are classified by credit-weighted average grades across all modules studied as part of the programme.
