Students who achieve 50% or above in a minimum of 60 but fewer than 90 credits will be suspended from progressing to dissertation until after their re-sits have been taken and the criteria in 1) have been achieved. Once the student has achieved the criteria in 1) they will be allowed to progress to project at the next available opportunity which is usually in the next academic year.

Students will not be allowed to proceed to dissertation or the MA, and will subsequently be re-registered on the PGDip if a pass at 50% or above is achieved in fewer than 60 credits.
