Your workload will normally consist of 60 credits (30 ECTS) per teaching period. For students attending the whole year this is a total of 120 Aston (60 ECTS) credits.
Students are expected to complete all assessments required by the modules and must remain at Aston for the examinations. For modules assessed by examinations, these are held at the end of each teaching period, e.g. in January, for teaching period 1.
Transcripts will be sent directly in the post to students after their marks have been confirmed by the relevant exam board. Please note that mid-year transcripts cannot be produced for any student even if you are only studying for teaching period one, as all transcripts are produced at the end of the academic year.
The guidelines in the document below indicate the marks and classifications to be awarded for various standards of student work. The descriptions in the below document are generalised and may vary from individual pieces of work set by academic staff. Find out more about the marking guidelines.
