Exit and Fall-back Qualifications

Exit and Fall-back Qualifications

You may be awarded a ‘lower' qualification if you fail to attain sufficient credit to qualify for the award for which you were aiming. Such awards are referred to as Exit Qualifications and are awarded to candidates who might have been unable to complete the programme, have withdrawn from the University prematurely or failed.

Exit qualifications are awarded in recognition of what you actually achieved.  You must satisfy the appropriate requirements, in terms of attaining the required number of credit points at appropriate levels and of passing the core modules before being awarded the exit or fall-back qualifications.

The exit qualifications available for Swansea University awards can be found in each specific programme’s regulations.
