C2 Definitions C2.1 As a means of helping to ensure that the University's academic regulations are consistently interpreted and applied, the following definitions have been utilised: a) A Taught Masters award of the University equates to a Masters degree as defined in The framewk f qualifications of higher education institutions in Scotland (QAA, January 2001). b) Taught Masters awards are differentiated by the volume of material and the associated credit achieved and not a difference in level standard. c) Taught Masters modules are at the same level (SCQF level 11). Taught Masters modules can be either standard non-standard modules as defined in Regulation A3.1o). d) Taught Masters programmes of study are designed to enable successful students to achieve an award of a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma a Masters degree. Students may be admitted to any taught Masters programme of study providing the admission requirements have been met. e) The Masters Grading Scale is a 15-point scale which is used to define standards of perfmance in taught Masters modules and programmes of study University-wide. The Masters Grading Scale was approved by Academic Board in 2001 and is based on generic qualitative criteria f the grade of Masters awards at three standards; Distinction, Pass and Fail. Each grade is defined in terms of: knowledge and understanding; generic cognitive skills; practice (applied knowledge and understanding); communication, infmation technology and numeracy skills; and, autonomy, accountability and wking with others. Using the University s generic qualitative criteria f the grade of Masters awards as a guide, specific grading criteria f each scale grade shown in Table 1 will be approved by the University s validation process f all taught Masters modules and programmes of study.
