Other programme-specific information

Discontinuation of studies
The Dean may, on the recommendation of the admissions committee, cancel the studies of a student who fails more than one module. A module may only be repeated once.


Examinations and pass requirements

A student is permitted to enter an examination in a module only if the lecturer of that module, in consultation with the head of department, certifies that the student has prepared himself or herself satisfactorily by due performance in his or her work and has fulfilled the attendance requirements.

A student may be refused admission to the examination if the prescribed tuition fees have not been paid. A student’s final marks may also be withheld should his or her tuition fees be outstanding.

A student may be refused admission to the examination if he or she has failed to fulfil the attendance requirements.

Subject to exceptions approved by the dean, on the recommendation of the head of department, a student may not enter for any master’s examination more than twice.

Pass requirements
In order to pass a master’s coursework module, a student must obtain a final mark of at least 50%.

Each faculty, by way of the faculty regulations, must determine the weight that is allocated to the year or semester mark and the examination mark in the calculation of the final mark of the student, where applicable. The calculation of marks may differ from module to module. This information is available in the relevant study guide and students are responsible for familiarising themselves with the way in which marks are calculated in a specific module.

Pass with distinction

The degree is conferred with distinction on students who have obtained at least 75% for the mini-dissertation and a minimum of 75% weighted average (not rounded) final mark for the coursework modules and completed the degree in minimum time.
