In order to ensure that students do not suffer any detriment to their studies and also to ensure that the awards WIUT/UoW make are still of the expected academic standards, Exceptional Regulations for the 2020/21 Academic Year were introduced temporarily.
We have moved our exams to online assessments and given you 6-12-24-48 hours (depending on the module) to complete them.
The following exceptional regulations will apply for WIUT during the 2020/21 Academic Year:
1) To extend 5.1.4 of Section 17 to allow undergraduate students to progress having only achieved 80 credits rather than 100 credits. This would again increase the maximum number of credits students could take in an academic year to 160 for 2021/22. While this would allow students to progress it should be noted that this will increase the burden on students in subsequent levels of study and may therefore impact their later progression and completion.
2) To amend 7.3.2 of Section 17 to allow award classifications for current level 6 students to be made on the best 200 credits at level 5 and 6 rather than 220 credits.
3) To amend 18.131 of Section 18 to allow award classifications for current level 7 students to be made on the best 160 credits rather than 180 credits. These exceptional regulations will apply to students progressing and completing at the 2020/21 academic year only.
We have temporarily amended the way in which we calculate your degree classification. We will now use the best 200 credits across levels 5 and 6 to calculate your indicator score. Your indicator score will be rounded to the nearest whole number to obtain your classification:
1st class Honours (1)
2nd Class Honours Upper Division (2:i)
2nd Class Honours Lower Division (2:ii)
3rd Class Honours (3)
Condonement allows you to gain credit for a module when you haven’t passed it. You still need to have achieved an overall module mark of at least 30.
According the the Handbook of Academic Regulations:
“4.3.7 Where condoned credit is awarded, although the overall module mark will remain at less than 40, the full module credit will be awarded, and the student will be regarded as having passed the module. It shall be recorded on the student’s record as a ‘condoned pass’.
4.3.8 A student may not be re-assessed in a condoned module.”
- At level 3 and 4 the maximum amount of credits that can be condoned is 40 credits.
- There is NO condoned credits at level 5.
Moving to online assessments allows you to access reference material while completing the assessment. You must therefore ensure you properly reference your work and do not collude with others to complete it. Your work will be submitted through plagiarism detection software and the University will take action in line with its academic misconduct policy if required.
Another way we are ensuring that the work you complete during the online assessments is your own is that we have taken the decision to suspend anonymous marking of these assessments. If your course team do not think that you have produced the work yourself, they may ask you to undertake a viva to help them to assess the provenance of the work.
If you have questions about anything to do with your teaching or assessment, then in the first instance you should contact your Module Leader and Course Leader. If they are unavailable (for example, due to illness), then please contact any of Academic Support Officers. You may also discuss with them all other aspects of the University’s services. Academic Support Services are working remotely. If your worries are stress-related, you may seek counseling support online through a video-call and by telephone line. Students may contact WIUT's psychologist during normal working hours at:
+99871 2387464 to get an appointment for a video or telephone consultation.
Note that although all University colleagues are currently working remotely, all services are operational and someone will get back to you as normal.
It is very important that you keep in contact with the University during this period.
Please ensure that you regularly check:
- your University email account
- your course and module Intranet sites
- the University webpages – updated information will be published to the Intranet
- The ASK WIUT Telegram Bot.
The University has carefully considered a number of temporary regulations to enable Postgraduate students to complete their studies. To provide parity with undergraduate students, we will be making amendments to how we classify your award. You will still need to pass every module (180 credits) but we will drop your worst 20-credit module from the classification calculation.
Please discuss the details of this policy with your Course Leader. This temporary policy change applies to the current academic year ONLY (for graduating students) and does not apply to PG students in Teaching and Learning.
Postgraduate students can also apply for mitigating circumstances if you have been impacted in any way by COVID-19.
For Prospective Students
The registration for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses are open and fully online. All the latest updates are communicated through the University official channels. The following changes have been applied in relation to:
