If you choose to repeat the year, it’s important that you take these factors into account:
You’ll need to pay full tuition fees again for repeating the year. View next year's fees.
Before selecting this outcome, we urge all students to read the important information below:
The Rules of Assessment state that you will not be granted more than three attempts at a module unless you have accepted extenuating circumstances.
If you fail a module for a third time, and cannot be offered a further attempt, you may have to carry the fail or could be withdrawn from the University.
It’s really important to know that if you take any of the same modules during your period of repeat study, you must not resubmit any work that you’ve previously submitted. This counts as self-plagiarism which is an academic offence and has serious consequences.
To avoid this, you should try to choose different assignment titles next year. However, you must talk to your tutor if the same, or a very similar, assignment title is set.
If you are receiving a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England you may be affected by repeat funding rules.
If this is your first repeat year and you have no previous higher education study, then the repeat year would be classed as your ‘gift’ year and your repeat year will be funded. However, if this is not your first repeat, or you have previous higher education study, you may not receive funding for your repeat year.
Please see the fees and funding webpage for guidance on repeat funding and applying for compelling personal reasons. You can also email the Funding Team at email@example.com for further advice if required.
You will have a maximum period in which you will need to complete your studies – this is normally the length of your course, plus two years. A repeat period of study will normally count as one of your additional years from your maximum period of study unless offered as a ‘First Sit’ due to accepted extenuating circumstances.
If you have a Tier 4 or Student Route visa, please see our immigration webpages to determine what impact your Board of Examiners outcome may have on your visa and your eligibility to apply for the Graduate Route if that is your intention once you have completed your studies.
