- All decisions on progression within the MPharm will be taken by the School Examination Board. In line with University Regulations, the School Exceptional Circumstances Committee will make recommendations to the School Examination Board regarding any cases where exceptional circumstances (see definition below) have been submitted to the School for consideration.
- A student must pass all modules within each level of the MPharm before being allowed to progress to the next level or graduate. The modules within each year are described here on the MPharm Online website; you can use the navigation menu above to access the module information.
- A student who has cumulatively failed resit examinations in two or fewer module equivalents, at the end of the academic year, will normally be permitted two further resit attempts to pass the module(s) in the following academic year. 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 module equivalents are equal to 10, 20, 30 and 40 CATS, respectively. The number of CATS assigned to each module is described in the module descriptions provided here on the MPharm Online website.
- Students are not normally permitted more than one repeat year (where a repeat year is defined as one required to be taken by a student due to one or more failed resit examinations), or 3 resit attempts at any module. Students requiring a second repeat year or failing any module after 3 resit attempts will normally be withdrawn by the School.
- A student who has cumulatively failed resit examinations in more than two module equivalents at the end of any examination session will normally be withdrawn by the School.
- Any student on the MPharm programme who is absent from an examination without timely submission of valid exceptional circumstances (see definition below), will be considered to have withdrawn and will normally be withdrawn by the School.
