Award-bearing courses

An award-bearing course is one that leads to a University qualification, such as an Undergraduate Certificate, Diploma, Advanced Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate.

Please note that MSt students should refer to the MSt Course Handbook for the rules and regulations that govern their course.

Non-award-bearing courses

Non-award-bearing courses, such as residential weekends, summer programmes and other short courses, do not lead to a recognised qualification, although in some circumstances a certificate of attendance or participation can be gained.
