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 2019/20 and 2020/21 academic years, the University Centre now has a No Detriment Policy that applies to all students registered on an OU-validated programme during 2019/20 and 2020/21. It is important to note that there are two different policies that apply to each academic year. They have been created in response to the particular conditions that arose during the year.
To gain an award students are still required to complete and gain a Pass in all required assessed work. However, the way that an overall mark for the year is calculated may be changed, depending on the grade profile and individual circumstances.
No Detriment 2020/21
- A full copy of the No Detriment Policy 2020/21 is available
- The Policy provides that a final mark may be adjusted to exclude a certain number of credits where performance in a module has been adversely affected by the pandemic.
No Detriment 2019/20
- 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 2019/20 is available
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.
