4 Preface These regulations, approved by the Senate of the University, govern the design of taught awards, the requirements for all other awards and the entry, progression, assessment and academic conduct of students. The regulations were initially approved by Senate in 1992 and amended in 1993; they were revised in 1999 so as to make terminology consistent and to incorporate changes which had been approved by Senate between 1993 and The Regulations for the Foundation Degree, BOptom and MPharm have now been incorporated. All awards of the University, awards validated by the University and awards validated by the University in the regional partner colleges are required to adhere to these Regulations. The University will, however, recognise some variation in terminology adopted by the regional partner colleges (relating for example to the naming of Awards Boards, Course Committees and courses etc.) provided that the detailed regulations and terms of reference are adhered to. No awards will be recognised as awards of the University unless approved by Senate and detailed in the regulations of the University which shall be reviewed from time to time. Subordinate regulations and notes of guidance relating to awards of the University must be consistent with these regulations and will be recognised by Senate only if approved through procedures laid down by Senate. All procedures for the management of programmes within the University must conform to the University s modular system as approved by Senate and to such other policy and regulatory statements as Senate shall approve from time to time. 3

6 PART ONE General Regulations Relating to Taught Awards of the University 5

7 1. ENTRY AND DURATION OF STUDY Entry Requirements 1.1 In considering individual applications evidence will be sought of personal, professional and educational experiences and competences, as appropriate, to provide indications of an ability to: meet the demands of the programme; benefit from the programme. 1.2 The University does not require this evidence to be in the form of standard educational qualifications but will judge such evidence against recognised national awards which will be seen as bench marks only. [Curriculum Regulations C1.1 and C1.2] 1.3 Candidates for admission to the University, other than nurse candidates, shall be at least 17 years of age on or before the date of commencement of their programme of study. Nurse candidates shall be at least 17.5 years of age on or before the date of commencement of their programme of study. [Curriculum Regulations C1.4] 1.4 Before admission an applicant must satisfy the requirements for entry prescribed by Senate and any particular award specific requirement. An applicant whose first language is not English may be required to produce evidence of their competence in the English language. [Curriculum Regulations C1.5] Admission with Credit 1.5 Students may be admitted with Credit on the basis of prior certificated learning and/or assessed experiential learning. Normally this will be no more than two thirds (measured in terms of credits) of the Award on which they are registered, except that students with Degrees or equivalent wishing to proceed to an Honours award may be admitted with a higher volume of credit. In exceptional circumstances, pathways may seek the approval of the Accreditation and Approvals Committee for a volume of credit beyond the two-thirds of that required for the award. [Curriculum Regulations C1.6 and C1.6.2] Duration of Study 1.6 The normal minimum period of study will calibrate directly with the credit rating of the award, on the basis that the normal minimum period will be one full-time academic year per 120 credits pro rata. An exception is the degree (300 credits) for which normally a minimum period of three full-time academic years is required The maximum period of registration is three times the minimum period of study. 1.8 In exceptional circumstances a student may be permitted to extend the period of registration thus permitting maximum flexibility for part-time and multi-mode students. 1.9 In order to facilitate maximum flexibility, regulations permit students to complete their Programmes of Study in multi-mode. [Curriculum Regulations B3.1 B3.4] 1 Unless Senate has approved an accelerated route. 6

8 2. PROGRESSION AND ASSESSMENT 2.1 Curriculum regulations must: specify the means by which students may progress through the programme of study, identifying compulsory and optional elements; specify attendance requirements where these are deemed to be essential to the satisfactory delivery of the programme; identify all the elements of study that will be assessed including assessed work experience; specify the means of assessment, its nature and timing; identify the elements, and their weighting, that must be passed in order to achieve the award; detail the provisions for reassessment, condonement and compensation including those elements for which condonement and compensation will not be permitted; specify the criteria governing the successful achievement of the award including any classification and distinctions that may be available. 2.2 Assessments should normally be submitted in the English language except in the case of appropriate assessments in modern foreign languages. [Curriculum Regulations A10.2.2] 2.3 No student shall receive an Award of the University if they have failed to fulfil their obligations to the University or regional partner colleges (for example if they are in debt to the University or College or in breach of any general regulations of the University or College), except with the agreement of the Vice-Chancellor of the University or regional partner colleges. 2.4 If a student is unable, through disability, to be assessed by the normal methods specified in the Assessment Regulations, the Assessment Panel or Awards Board may vary the methods as appropriate, bearing in mind the objectives of the programme and the need to assess the student on equal terms with other students. [Curriculum Regulations E10] 3. WORK PLACEMENT Students who through reason of lack of competence, poor conduct, behaviour, health, attendance or otherwise are (for due cause) removed, dismissed, banned or rejected from work experience or placement, in the absence of any other reasonable alternative shall have their course terminated and be required to withdraw from the University. [Rules, Regulations and Procedures for Students, Paragraph 4] 4. AWARDS BOARDS AND EXTERNAL ASSESSORS 4.1 There will be an Awards Board responsible for determining the progression of students to the next part, or the granting, of a University Award and its classification where appropriate. 4.2 The Awards Board shall report to the Senate of the University or any sub committee recognised by the Senate for that purpose. 4.3 The Awards Board is authorised to assess students in accordance with the programme assessment regulations and to recommend the conferment of an Award upon a student who, in the judgement of the Board has achieved the learning outcomes of the approved programme of study and achieved the standard required for the Award. 7

9 4.4 The approved Awards Board may establish sub committees to undertake such activities as may be identified from time to time by the Awards Board. 4.5 The approved Awards Board must be responsible for all assessments that contribute to the recommendation of an Award of the University. No other body has authority to recommend conferment of an Award, nor to amend the decision of an approved and properly constituted Awards Board acting within its terms of reference and in accordance with the regulations for the programme of study. 4.6 An Awards Board may, however, be required to review a decision or may have that decision annulled by the Senate of the University under circumstances detailed in the regulations governing Appeals. 4.7 The composition and terms of reference of Awards Boards and their sub committees will be set out in the Curriculum Regulations approved by Senate or by the Academic Board or other appropriate committee of regional partner colleges and other institutions whose programmes of study are validated by the University. 4.8 There shall be a Secretary (who shall not be a member of the Board). In the unavoidable absence of the Secretary, the Board shall nominate a secretary from amongst its members. 4.9 In no circumstances may external colleagues, students (who are also members of staff) or members of staff (with the exception of the personal tutor) who have not contributed to the teaching or assessment of the programme be permitted to attend meetings of Awards Boards or their sub committees except with the prior approval of the Chair, and then only as an observer or officer The Chair of Senate delegates authority to the Chairs of Awards Boards and approved sub-committees constituted and approved under the University s own Curriculum Regulations to ratify and sign the final lists of students results and the conferment of Awards In the case of Awards Boards constituted and approved by Senate or by the Academic Board or other appropriate committee of regional partner colleges and other institutions whose programmes of study are validated by the University, the Chair of the University s Senate delegates authority to the Chair of the institution s Academic Board or the Chair of the Awards Board to ratify and sign the final lists of students results and the conferment of Awards Minutes marked Confidential will be made available to all members of the Awards Board and its sub-committees and, where necessary, appropriate members of the University s staff, both academic and administrative, on a confidential basis. [Curriculum Regulations Part 6, 1.4.1] 4.13 Relevant extracts of minutes may be required as evidence (for or against) in the context of a confidential academic appeal or disciplinary hearing. This is permitted but with the prior presumption of respect by all parties for the confidentiality of the material. [Curriculum Regulations Part 6, 1.4.2] 4.14 Except as provided under the University Appeals Regulations no decision of a properly constituted Awards Board, operating within its terms of reference, may be modified by any authority within the University The decisions of the Awards Board shall be recorded in formal minutes External Assessors shall be appointed in accordance with the procedures of the Senate of the University as laid down in the University s Quality Assurance Handbook, partner institutions additional guidance and institutional curriculum regulations. 8

10 4.17 External Assessors are defined by the University as moderators and not second markers. They may not, in normal circumstances, alter any marks of individual students in a sample unless that student s work has been included by internal examiners for the purpose of adjudication by the External Assessor Where an External Assessor believes that the sample as a whole reflects that the standards that are being applied are inappropriate or inconsistent, action must be taken in relation to the cohort as a whole. 5. PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT 5.1 All programmes of study (equivalent to courses or course schemes) must make provision for a programme committee and a programme leader. Composition of Programme Committees 5.2 As a minimum, programme committees must include: a programme leader (Chair), Chairs (or nominees) of appropriate sub-committees, A member of staff from each major contributing element of the programme, A representative sample of students, External representatives and advisors (as appropriate), Administrative and academic managers or staff as appropriate. Terms of Reference of Programme Committees 5.3 The programme committee shall be responsible to the Senate of the University (through the Academic Board or other appropriate committee of regional partner colleges and other institutions whose programmes are validated by the University) for the smooth running of the programme, its academic quality and for the academic welfare of the students. Specifically, the committee shall be responsible for the following, the: achievement of programme outcomes, implementation of the aims and objectives of the programme and oversight of the continuing appropriateness of the content, oversight of the operation of any sub-committees reporting to it, implementation and review of programme policy, maintenance of academic standards including monitoring and evaluation of the programme, agreement of an annual report on the programme according to the requirements of the University s Senate, preparation of the information required for the renewal of approval or review of the programme or its constituent elements at appropriate intervals, making recommendations to the executive of the University, college or other institution whose programmes are validated by the University, on matters relating to the effective organisation and administration of the programme including resources. 9

11 Sub-committees of the Programme Committee 5.4 Composition and Terms of Reference of any sub-committees of the programme committee must be specified and agreed by the programme committee. Programme Leader Terms of Reference 5.5 The programme leader is the executive arm of the programme committee and in the execution of their responsibilities may call upon assistance from members of the programme committee which they will Chair. Where a programme is designed and run jointly with an external agency, a joint Leadership may be established. However, formal responsibility will reside with the member of the University or regional partner college and other institutions whose programmes are validated by the University, and not with the agency. 5.6 The programme leader is therefore responsible to the programme committee for the academic leadership of the programme and its day-to-day operation. 5.7 In particular, the programme leader will directly or indirectly through other designated officers of the committee: be responsible for the effective implementation and operation of the approved programme, ensure, through the programme committee, regular and formal exchanges of views between staff and students, monitor the progress of students and ensure that they receive adequate advice on programme related matters, identify and seek solutions to any operational difficulties affecting the programme, monitor the resource needs of the programme and liaise with appropriate resource providers, oversee the use of any resources allocated specifically for the programme, monitor the effectiveness of the staff allocated to teach on the programme and ensure adequate consultation between staff to achieve programme outcomes, prepare a draft programme report for consideration by the committee, ensure that arrangements are made for the proper conduct of the Awards Board and its sub-committees, draw to the attention of the programme committee any significant modifications to the approved programme which are thought desirable during the period of its approval. 6. RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF STUDENTS Duties 6.1 The student s right to be assessed or reassessed depends on fulfilment of these duties. 6.2 If a student fails to fulfil attendance requirements without good cause, the Chair of the Awards Board has authority to withhold the right to be assessed and to deem the student to have failed. The Senate, through the Awards Board, reserves the right not to permit reassessment in these circumstances. 10

12 6.3 If a student fails to attend examinations or submit work for assessment without good cause, the Awards Board has authority to deem the student to have failed the assessments concerned. The Senate, through the Awards Board, reserves the right not to permit reassessment in these circumstances. 6.4 If a student is found to have cheated or attempted to gain an unfair advantage, the assessors have authority to deem the student to have failed all the assessments and the authority to withdraw any right to be reassessed. 6.5 If a student fails without good cause to provide the Chair of the Awards Board in writing, within five working days after the submission date for the assessment and/or the end of the examination period, in advance of the meeting of the Awards Board or its sub committee, details of circumstances that may have affected performance in assessments, the Senate or other relevant body authorised by it to consider requests for the review of an assessor s decision has authority to reject the request on those grounds. 6.6 If a student is found to have acted in breach of the disciplinary requirements of the University or institution in which study (or other programme related experience) is being undertaken, the University or college at which the student is enrolled has authority to ban the student from attendance and to deem the student to have failed to fulfil the requirement to attend classes and examinations, provided that this authority is exercised through the approved disciplinary procedures of the University or college. Rights 6.7 A student has the following rights. Students shall, be informed about the nature and methods of their assessment as set out in the Regulations for the Award on which they are registered; be provided with teaching and tutorial guidance in preparation for assessment of the award in accordance with its Regulations; be assessed in accordance with the Regulations; be reassessed in accordance with those Regulations; request a review of an assessor s decision if there is evidence of any irregularity in the conduct of assessments or if the student s performance was affected by personal circumstances which for valid reasons could not be notified to the assessors before the decision was taken, and to have that request formally considered by the body authorised to consider such requests (see appeals procedures); to provide the Awards Board, through the Chair and via the programme Director of Studies, in advance of the meeting, with any relevant information on personal circumstances which may have affected performance be consulted (but not necessarily individually) on any proposed changes to progression and assessment Regulations which will relate to students currently on pathways and which could directly affect the individual student; seek redress through the programme Committee or other appropriate channels, if the University or College, without valid cause, has failed to provide the teaching and tutorial guidance specified in the Regulations for the programme or has failed to provide reasonable alternative arrangements, or has failed to provide information on the nature and methods of assessment. 11

13 Responsibilities 6.8 A student has the following responsibilities: to attend the taught elements of the programme of study on which they are registered unless sickness or other valid circumstances pertain; to attend examinations and submit work for assessment in accordance with regulations, without cheating or otherwise seeking to gain unfair advantage; [Curriculum Regulations E11] 7. ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT 7.1 Senate has established procedures for dealing with allegations involving plagiarism or other forms of cheating. These are contained in separate regulations and published in Student Handbooks. 7.2 These procedures reflect the University s policy towards students registered directly with the University, or under franchise arrangements and through distance learning and other off-campus course delivery processes. Students registered at City College Norwich, Norwich School of Art & Design and Colchester Institute will be governed by procedures specified by the Academic Board of the institution at which they are enrolled. 8. ACADEMIC APPEALS 8.1 Senate has established procedures for dealing with appeals against decisions of an Awards Board. These are contained in separate regulations and published in Student Handbooks. 8.2 Senate has delegated to the Academic Boards of City College Norwich, Colchester Institute and Norwich School of Art & Design responsibility to hear appeals from students registered for University Awards at those institutions in accordance with procedures and criteria laid down by the Senate of the University. Students may appeal to the Senate of the University only on the ground of maladministration of the appeals procedure within those institutions. 9. AEGROTAT AWARDS At the discretion of the Awards Board a student may be awarded an Aegrotat Cert HE, Dip HE, Foundation Degree or Degree/Degree with Hons (unclassified) provided that there is evidence that the student could have demonstrated that he/she would have achieved the appropriate level of competence had it not been for illness or other valid cause. The student has the right to refuse an Aegrotat award and seek to be assessed. [Curriculum Regulations E8] 10. POSTHUMOUS AWARD In the event of a candidate s death the Senate may award, on the advice of an Awards Board, a degree, diploma or certicicate post obitum provided that it is satisfied that there is sufficient evidence that the student would have successfully completed the degree, diploma or certificate and that the student had successfully completed normally, at least, two-thirds of a programme of study.
