Student Pitfalls
According to DCU Regulations
1)
The four year rule
- there is a maximum of 4 year anybody can spend on our Masters
programme,
- this includes deferred years and work or illness-related issues
2)
The one session repeat rule
- there are a max of four attempts at any module except the project
- there are a maximum of two attempts at the project
3)
There are three different CA categories
- 1: resit is available for all components of the module
- 2: no resit is available for a 100% CA module
- 3: no resit is available for the CA component only
Deferrals and Absences
To defer an entire academic year, complete a “Deferral of Academic
Year” form (R-32) https://www4.dcu.ie/sites/default/files/registry/pdfs/R32.pdf
To defer exams, complete a “Deferral of Examination Form” (R-33)
https://www4.dcu.ie/sites/default/files/registry/pdfs/R33.pdf
- Separate forms are required for each exam session (including re-sit)
Unexplained absences from exams result in a FAILED ATTEMPT.
Therefore:
- Ensure you are registered correctly
- If absent, complete an “Absent from Examination Form” (R-41)
https://www4.dcu.ie/sites/default/files/registry/pdfs/R41.pdf
For other forms, please see:
