The Operations and Supply Chain Management (Dual Award) MSc is a 17-month, full-time, intensive modular programme. The programme consists of two parts: a taught component that runs during the first and second semesters, the first semester is undertaken at Newcastle University Business School and the second semester is undertaken at Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Groningen; and a research project that runs during the third semester, for which a dissertation is submitted. This innovative programme provides the opportunity to study for a Master s award at two highly respected European universities Newcastle and Groningen. The programme aims to produce graduates with the necessary specialist knowledge and skills appropriate to pursue careers in operations management, technology management, supply chain management, general management, and consulting. There will be an induction week for your Master s programme at the start of Semester 1 including sessions with your programme director, your designated personal tutor, group activities and social events. This week is also your opportunity to familiarise yourself with the University, the facilities available such as the Robinson Library, and check details such as your timetable. A full schedule for the week will be included in your welcome pack on the first day of induction week and will also be published in the Current Students section of the Business School website at 4 An overview of the programme structure is given on the following pages. Information on module content is available online at and further details of the structure will be given during the first lecture for each module. MORE: ncl.ac.uk/nubs

10 Newcastle University Business School: Postgraduate Handbook Your assessment The assessment will depend on the individual module. You can expect to be assessed by a variety of means, including examinations, assignments both individual and group, presentations and the dissertation. The mix of assessment methods is to allow you to demonstrate your understanding of the knowledge outcomes of the programme and also your assimilation of the skills developed during your Master s programme. The assessment methods used in individual modules are included in the module outlines. The assessments for the taught modules are summarised in the table opposite. Details of assessment deadlines will be provided on the Postgraduate Blackboard Community within the first two weeks of term to allow you to plan your workload. You should familiarise yourself with the assignment submission procedures available on the Postgraduate Blackboard Community. All assignments for Business School postgraduate modules must be submitted by on the specified deadline date. 9 Most assignment deadlines are set at on a Monday morning. This timing was decided upon following feedback from students in previous years as it allows you to make full use of the weekend for working on your assessment but doesn t overlap with classes on a Monday. Please note that work submitted after the specified deadline, even by just a few minutes, will be treated as a late submission in line with University policy. Please see further details in the Postgraduate Study Guide on late submission of assessed work. Occasionally, a module leader may change an assignment deadline (almost always to a later date). You will be notified of this in advance by by either the module leader or the relevant programme secretary. For all assignment deadlines, you should receive your marks and feedback within 20 working days. There may be certain exceptions to this turnaround time, but you will be notified of this at the time the deadline is set. For Semester 1 exams, generic feedback will be provided for the module early in Semester 2 to help you prepare for Semester 2 exams. For any students required to resit any exam, as a minimum generic feedback will be provided at least four weeks before the resit exam. Individual feedback for any exam can be provided on request after exam boards have met.

Grading scale For all modules receiving dual recognition and the joint dissertation the grading scale opposite is used: How Groningen Resits Translate The regulations regarding resit assessments differ between institutions. You will be able to resit/resubmit assessments for the modules taken in Groningen as outlined in their regulations. However, the following rules will apply for the recognition of these marks towards the Newcastle award: Newcastle Groningen end grades without decimals 1. If you resit/resubmit an assessment (or part thereof) after failing your first attempt, the grade for the resit/resubmission will be capped at 50 in line with the regulations at Newcastle. Groningen module grades with decimals 95% % % 8 (Distinction) % 7(Merit) % 6 (Pass) % 5 (Fail) % % % % In line with the Newcastle regulations, if you have passed an assessment in Groningen but choose to resit/resubmit, the grade from the first attempt will appear on the Newcastle transcript and will be used to calculate the overall average for the Newcastle award. 10 Personal Extenuating Circumstances (PEC) If you have any extenuating circumstances that affect your ability to study at any stage of the programme, the PEC process at Newcastle will apply.
