University Centre Regulations

No Detriment Policy (for students on Open University-validated programmes only)

As a result of the lockdown and period of remote teaching and learning during the latter part of 2019/20 academic year, the University Centre now has a No Detriment Policy that applies to all students registered on an OU-validated programme during 2019/20. You are still required to complete and gain a Pass in all required assessed work to achieve your award. However, the way that your overall mark for the year is calculated may be changed, depending on your grade profile.

  • This Help Sheet has been created to enable you to understand the key points of the Policy and how it applies in practice
  • A full copy of the No Detriment Policy is available

Transfer Arrangements

There are no formal arrangements for students transferring to or from other courses at other HE providers. In the event of an early course closure that required students to transfer to another HE provider, the measures outlined in GR10 Student Protection Plan would be implemented. Where a student transferred to UCCC from another HE provider where a course closed early, an applicant’s prior learning would be assessed using the guidelines outlined in AR1 Student Guide to Recognition of Prior Learning.
