1.1 Students who undertake the Ordinary Degree route may not take more than 80 credits at Level 6. Students would normally not take the 40 credit project module (or equivalent).

2. Application

2.1 The Ordinary Degree is classed as a full time programme and the published fee for a full time undergraduate student will be charged. There will be no fee reduction or reimbursement of the fee for the 40 credit project module.

2.2 Students who successfully complete the Ordinary Degree have the option to top-up their award to an Honours Degree by undertaking the 40 credit project module (or equivalent). During the top up year students are classed as part-time and will be charged the published fee for undergraduate part-time study.
