Degree outcomes statement

The Degree Outcomes Statement describes our ongoing commitment to maintaining academic standards and how we meet the expectations for standards set out within the UK Quality Code and the Office for Students’ ongoing conditions of registration (B4 and B5) that relate to protecting the value of qualifications.

The Statement also articulates the outcomes of our internal institutional review conducted during the 2019/20 academic year of undergraduate degree classifications awarded over the last five years (2014/15 to 2018/19 inclusive). The statement was produced in line with guidance issued by the UK Standing Committee for Quality Assessment (UKSCQA) and was approved by the University’s Academic Board and Board of Governors in July 2020.

An updated version of the statement which includes 2019/20 degree outcomes and details of our approach to academic standards during the Covid-19 pandemic was approved by Academic Board and the Board of Governors in July 2021 and is also published below.

Further information on the University’s assessment regulations and the degree classification algorithm can be found in the Academic Regulations.
