SPECIFIC LEARNING DIFFICULTIES (DYSLEXIA) Mature students who experienced problems at school are often unaware that these problems may result from their being dyslexic. Whilst dyslexia cannot be cured, you can learn strategies, which make studying significantly easier. If you think you may be dyslexic you should contact the Disability Office who can screen you and where appropriate refer you to an Educational Psychologist for a dyslexia assessment. These assessments cost 215. Some students can receive assistance in meeting this cost from their employer. In exceptional cases students may receive assistance from the Access to Learning Fund. 13

14 EXAMINATIONS Students with disabilities and dyslexia may be eligible for special arrangements for examinations e.g. extra time, use of a word processor, amanuensis, enlarged examination papers etc. In order to receive special arrangements a student must provide medical evidence of their disability (or, if you are dyslexic, an Educational Psychologists report) to the Disability Office as soon as they enrol on the programme. The examinations office will then receive this information from the Disability Office in order to make special examinations arrangements. For in-class tests you should contact your lecturer and the programme administrator to request special arrangements at least 2 weeks before the examination. 2.5 STUDENT FEES Student fees are payable on either a monthly, termly or annual basis. Student fees are decided by individual student status: the status categories are set out below.

Repeating (retaking) modules Where students need to retake modules, i.e. re-attend classes, and are not paying programme fees, a pro rata fee will be charged.

20 3. PROGRAMME STRUCTURES This section provides a background to our undergraduate programmes and sets out the structures for each programme. Each undergraduate degree programme has three levels level 4 (certificate), level 5 (intermediate) and level 6 (honours). For undergraduate programmes, we offer half modules (15 credits), modules (30 credits) or double modules (60 credits) at levels 4, 5 and 6. The detailed requirements for each programme are published in the relevant programme specification. Each module on a programme is designated as one of the following: Core the module must be taken and passed to allow the student to complete the degree Compulsory the module must be taken, a minimum assessment of a marginal fail (at least 30%) must be achieved Option students may choose a stipulated number of modules from a range made available to them. Option modules are clearly identified in Programme Regulations. Elective students may replace an option module with modules from another programme, subject to approval of Programme Directors, availability of places and timetable requirements. Modules may also be designated as pre-requisite modules, meaning they must be taken and passed to allow for progression to a specified follow-up module.
