Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

If you are studying on an award-bearing course at ICE, you are expected to take an active part in your course. This includes attending classes, contributing to class work and handing in work for assessment to provide evidence of your learning.

You must meet all of the following requirements to achieve a qualification:

  1. participate actively in class work and/or in the virtual learning environment (VLE), where appropriate;
  2. submit all of the assessed assignments for your course;
  3. demonstrate the achievement of all the learning outcomes expected from the course by achieving a pass mark for each termly unit and/or any other tasks stated as a requirement in the syllabus;
  4. attend the face-to-face teaching sessions; full attendance is expected. If you must miss a session owing to unforeseen and significant circumstances the tutor and programme team should be informed as soon as possible.

All courses have their own handbooks or course guides detailing specific requirements that must be fulfilled in order to achieve a qualification. Copies of these handbooks or course guides are available on the VLE.

Your course grade will reflect both your academic achievement and your participation in the course. Assignments will be assessed against the anticipated learning outcomes for each unit and the generic pass criteria given in the Student Handbook. Please see the Student Handbook for a full explanation of how your course grade is calculated.
