REGULATION INFORMATION

Does the Programme have any approved exemptions from the University General Regulations
(Please see General Regulations)

Yes 1. BEd students enrol for a specific main subject option and a specific subsidiary subject option. For new students enrolling in 2017-18, main subjects are Business Studies, Mathematics, Religious Studies and Technology and Design, while subsidiary subjects are English, History, ICT and Science. Once enrolled it is not normally possible to transfer to another subject option. 2. They must register for modules worth 120 Level 1 CATS points and 120 Level 2 CATS points in Stages 1 and 2 respectively before proceeding to take modules leading to 240 Level 3 CATS points in Stages 3 and 4. To graduate with a BEd honours degree students must receive credit for at least 220 Level 3 CATS points including credit for all School-Based Work. 3. Students may, at the discretion of the Programme Board of Examiners, be allowed to proceed from a Stage if they have received credit for modules worth at least 80 CATS points at that level. In such a situation students must subsequently pass the modules failed before they will be permitted to proceed from the next stage e.g. students who have not received credit for 120 Level 1 CATS points will not be permitted to proceed to Stage 3. 3. For students first enrolled on the programme prior to 2009/10 the regulations in force at the date of entry will apply and thus when calculating the honours classification the weightings given to modules will be in the ratio 40:60:75 for modules taken in Stages 2, 3 and 4. For students first enrolled on the programme in or after 2009/10, the following module weightings should be used when calculating the honours classification: Stage 1 10%, Stage 2 15%, Stage 3 30% and Stage 4 45%. 4. If a student fails a module at the first attempt, repeat assessment, as determined by the Subject Board of Examiners, will be scheduled as follows: (a) where a student is required to resit an examination paper or repeat other assessment components (without class attendance), this will normally take place before the end of the academic year; (b) where a student is required to repeat assessment components (with class attendance), this will normally take place when the failed module is next available. If the failed module is no longer being offered, the student will have to take a substitute module approved by his/her Adviser of Studies; (c) where a student is not successful in school-based work, the Board of Examiners will determine if and when the student will repeat all or part of school-based work. The student may be required to repeat this school-based work during the following academic year.

Programme Specific Regulations

1. Applicants should note that all BEd Programmes are designed to satisfy the accreditation requirements of the Department of Education for BEd programmes and may therefore have to be modified if these requirements change.

2. Attendance at school-based work, field courses and/or participation in other practical work outside the University Colleges or normal teaching time may be a requirement for certain modules.

3. Students in Stage 1 must take MES1012, MSW1012, the option module(s) in one of the main subjects and the option module(s) in one of the subsidiary subjects. In 2017-18 the option modules in the main subjects are Business Studies (MBS1002), Mathematics (MMT1021), Religious Studies (MRS1022) or Technology and Design (MTD1001 + MTD1021 + MTD1022) and the option module(s) in the subsidiary subjects are English (MEN1002), ICT (MIT1024), History (MMH1010) or Science (MSC1023). The choice of subsidiary subject may be restricted and students must consult with their adviser of studies before selecting a subsidiary subject. Students taking Mathematics as their main subject must take Science as their subsidiary subject.

4 Students in Stage 2 not participating in SOCRATES (ERASMUS) Outward Mobility will take MES2014, MSW2014, the option module(s) in one of the main subjects and the option module(s) in one of the subsidiary subjects.

Students in Stage 2 participating in SOCRATES (ERASMUS) Outward Mobility will take MEO2009, MPS2083, 1 module of main subject studies (MBS2080, MMT2080, MRS2080 or MTD2080) and 1 module equivalent (20 CATS points) of subsidiary subject studies (MIT2080 + MIT2081, MEN2080, MMH2081 or MSC2082), in the first semester in the home institution. Students taking Mathematics as their main subject must take Science as their subsidiary subject. There will be an integrated Learning Programme, agreed by the home and host institutions, in the second semester. This Learning Programme shall merit 30 European Credit Transfer System credits and thus be equivalent to three modules.

5. Students in Stage 3 will take MCS3016, MES3016, MSW3016 and the option module(s) in one of the main subjects. In 2017-18 the option modules in the main subjects are Business Studies (MBS3003 + MBS3004 + MBS3005), Mathematics (MMT3032 + MMT3033), Religious Studies (MRS3012 + MRS3013 + MRS3032) or Technology and Design (MTD3005 + MTD3006 + MTD3017).
