If you have failed modules then you may get the opportunity to repeat these at the next opportunity. This will depend on a number of factors which include, how many modules you have failed, if you have breached the accumulated failure count and if you have any supplementary regulations on your programme.

After your resits have taken place, the Award and Status Board will confirm your results and you will then receive your progression outcome from with guidance on what to do next.

If you are permitted to repeat modules then you will be sent a decision form and it is important that you send this back to us as soon as possible so that we can set up your student record correctly. We will then check that there are no timetabling clashes or restrictions on your award map before this is confirmed.

When repeating a module you will repeat all of the teaching and assessments again, you will study the entire module from scratch.

There is a cost to repeating a module, you can contact to find out more about what this will be.

It is important to be aware that repeating modules may lead to an additional year of study and you should explore the impact that this may have on your funding from Student Finance. We have a leaflet called ‘Financial Guidance for repeating, restarting or extending study’ explaining more.

You can also contact our Financial Guidance Team at to discuss funding in more detail.

If you are an International Student then repeating a module may have some implications for your student visa, so you will need to speak to the International Student Support Team to discuss this
