MSc in Semiconductor Photonics and Electronics
The MSc degree is split into a number of modules, and a project, which is worth 60 credits. For the award of a degree you should pass the modules and project, (a total of 180 credits) although discretion can and is applied if students are sufficiently close to this standard.
The modules are assessed by a variety of means, including formal examinations, and coursework/reports. The formal exams are held at the end of each of the two teaching semesters (typically in January and June). Coursework deadlines are given out during semester by the member of staff concerned.
Each module is marked in terms of a percentage and these are averaged to give your weighted score, which can determine if you are eligible for a distinction for example.
Details of how each module is assessed can be found on the course content page.
