NFAAR: Information for students
NB. This information is provided to explain how the programme catalogues have been revised to help you understand the way in which the NFAAR has been applied to your programme of study (where relevant). The University's NFAAR web pages should be referred to for full details of all versions of the NFAAR.
In 2008/09 the University introduced a new academic framework of assessment regulations which will govern most undergraduate degree programmes. This framework - called the New Framework for Assessment: Assessment Regulations (NFAAR) - describes the rules for progression from one stage of a degree programme to the next (including supplementary assessment, and the extent of failure that can be condoned), as well as for the award of degrees. Students taking programmes which fall within the NFAAR will be assessed according to these rules.
From the 2011/12 academic year, the NFAAR has been extended to cover most taught programmes of study offered by the University. There are five different versions of the NFAAR covering different types of programmes. The programme catalogues have been updated to help you to understand the way in which the NFAAR has been applied to your programme of study. For information on the format of these changes please follow the links in the first column in the table below. The last column in the table provides links to the full documentation on each version of the NFAAR.
