Professor Stephen Gilmore Computing N/A Date of next scheduled accreditation visit External Examiner Institution/Organisation University of Edinburgh Does the Programme have any approved exemptions from the University General Regulations (Please see General Regulations) Programme Specific Regulations Yes No x (If yes, please state here any exemptions to regulations which have been approved for this programme) Examinations The programme is subject to the University General Regulations which can be found at: caffairs/ Assessment criteria are linked to the learning outcomes for each module. A range of assessment instruments are used including laboratory-based assignments, group and individual projects, practical exams and unseen written exams. Exam-based assessment is carried out in January and May and marks for the taught modules are finalised at the Board of Examiners meeting in May/June. The pass mark for all taught modules is 50%. Students are normally permitted one further attempt to pass a failed module with the mark used in calculating the final award capped at 50%. Students who, at the first attempt, have failed taught modules to the value of more than 40 CATS points, or who have failed the same module twice, will be referred to the School Student Progress Committee (SSPC). The individual software development project is assessed in September. All dissertations will be assessed by the external examiner, with the possibility of a viva voce, and marks finalised at the Board of Examiners meeting in November. The pass mark for the individual software development project module is 50% and there is no resit.

3 Progression Students who obtain 120 CATS points in the taught modules are required to undertake an individual software development project and submit a dissertation in September. This dissertation must be passed at 50% or more for the award of the MSc. All students must normally have satisfactorily completed all of the required taught modules (120 CATS points) before they will be permitted to begin their individual software development project. Students who, at the first attempt, have failed taught modules with a combined value greater than 40 CATS points or who have failed the same module twice will normally not be permitted to proceed to the individual software development project and will be required to transfer to the Postgraduate Diploma in Software Development. Students who fail one or more taught modules up to the value of 40 CATS points will only have the opportunity to resit failed modules once at the next available opportunity. Students with protected characteristics Are students subject to Fitness to Practise Regulations (Please see General Regulations) Students who have failed to achieve at least 50% in the individual software development project will be considered for the award of the Postgraduate Diploma. Normally, students who fail the individual software development project will not have the opportunity to resubmit their original project or retake a new project. Students, who have achieved at least 60 CATS points, including at least one compulsory module, may opt to be considered for the award of the Postgraduate Certificate. N/A Please indicate No Fitness to Practise programmes are those which permit students to enter a profession which is itself subject to Fitness to Practise rules
