Exemptions for repeating students in labs and workshops


Students who are repeating a Unit of Study may be given an exemption from the laboratory/workshop component providing that they previously gained a minimum grade of credit in the laboratory/workshop component of that unit of study, (providing the laboratory/workshop component of a Unit of Study has not been changed significantly).

Exemptions will not be given if the laboratory course was previously undertaken more than 3 years prior to the student repeating that Unit of Study.

A student must apply in writing (email) to the UoS coordinator for an exemption to the laboratory/workshop component of a UoS. The UoS coordinator must notify the student of the outcome of their application for exemption in writing. Where the granting of an exemption results in a change to the weighting of the remaining components of that UoS, the coordinator must also notify the student of this change in writing.

The student must accept the offer of exemption in writing. The student must continue to attend all laboratory/workshop classes until an offer of exemption has been made and accepted in writing.

If an exemption is accepted then the student may not attend the workshop/practical class just for practice.

NB: Exemptions will not be given for exams (including mid semester exams)
