The Course Regulations provide the framework for the assessment of all taught Higher Education students at University of the Arts London. This page provides the Regulations for all courses and levels, from October 2020.
Award Classification update:
The university recently introduced new undergraduate regulations related to how the final classification is calculated. The new regulations were first used for students graduating in 2020*.
Graduating UG students will have their final classification calculated using two separate algorithms. Detail of both algorithms can be found in the course regulations on this page and on the assessment regulations page.
Please note that to assure the standards of all University of the Arts London awards it is a requirement to have external examiners verify the level of student achievement. This involves sampling the assessment outcomes from units that contribute to the calculation of the award. The University cannot award degrees without this external scrutiny. Therefore from October 2018 onwards external examiners will be required to ratify level 5 student achievement in the same way they currently do for Level 6.
*If you are a student in the final year of undergraduate study who enrolled prior to September 2017 you are not impacted by this change so please consult the Course Regulations 2018-19 Students enrolled BEFORE September 2017 Regulations. As work from your second year will not have been ratified by our External Examiners, it cannot be included as part of your award classification.
