Repeating Modules?

Two birds

If you are undertaking modules with a status of ‘Repeat Year – Repeat failed modules' or 'Proceed – Repeat or Substitute Module,’ during this academic session, it is important you read and understand the following information.

If you have another Repeat status, such as ‘Repeat Year – First Attempt,’ we recommend you refer to the Understanding my results page for further information.

What You Need to Know…

  • You are required to retake one or more modules which you failed in the previous academic session.
  • You must pass a repeat module as you will only be allowed to repeat once (this will not affect your end of year resit opportunities).
  • Repeat modules are capped at pass.
  • Repeating modules may have financial implications; visit Repeating Part of Your Course - Funding implications.
  • You should notify your funding body of your repeat student status as it will likely affect your funding.
  • The Student Money Advice Team can provide advice on the financial implications of repeating.
  • It is advisable to make an appointment with your Course Leader who can provide guidance and support to help you complete your studies.
  • It is important that you read the Repeat Module Regulations.

Improve Your Chances of Success

To improve your chances of successfully repeating your modules, you will need to:

  • Attend and engage with all teaching sessions
  • Know your curriculum and timetable
  • Undertake all elements of assessment associated with your curriculum
  • Know your assessment deadlines

International Students

If you have not yet successfully completed all the assessments assigned to you during your last period of study, you may not have enough time on your current visa to complete your studies in the UK. You should contact the Immigration and International Student Advice team urgently to discuss your situation and the possibility of extending your study length.

How can you improve and can we help?

If you’re repeating modules, we have produced a reflective questionnaire to support you. The questions will help you reflect on why you didn’t pass last year, set your goals for the year ahead and to tell us what the University can do to support you. 

Your answers are anonymous unless you choose to provide your course details and student ID number.

Evidence suggests that students who engage with support services, go on to succeed in their studies. For more information about help and support, visit the Support Services page.
