2.5 What are Credits?

A certain number of credits, usually either 15 or 30, will be awarded if you satisfactorily complete a module. The award of credits for a module is an all-or-nothing affair: if you successfully complete the module, you get all the credits for it; if you fail the module you get none of the credits for it. Depending on your programme of study, up to 30 failed credits per stage may be condonable.

Undergraduates take enough modules to gain 120 credits for each stage of their programme. Postgraduate-taught students take 180 credits in total.
