Progress to the MSc
Project work will be carried out over the summer immediately after the end of the second semester - a period of 11 weeks is specified for this. The project dissertation deadline will be in mid- late August each year.
The Examiners will award a mark and a grade to each dissertation: A, B, C (Pass grades), Resubmit for a Pass (grade C), or Fail. An MSc with distinction will be awarded to students who have achieved the level of distinction in the Diploma examinations and who produce an MSc dissertation graded A by the Examiners (a grade A corresponds to “first class work”, that is work which is significantly better than the minimum required for a pass).
A student who has achieved six or more course passes by June but who has not already qualified for progression to the MSc can resit any or all courses at the autumn diet of the same year. If he/she then achieves an average of at least 50% in his/her best eight courses he/she may be allowed to return the following summer to register for the MSc. Only one resit opportunity will be permitted.
