Undergraduate Progression (Years 1-3)

For students moving onto their next year of study, a progression decision will be communicated via the EUCLID student view, this will tell you whether you have been approved to proceed, or if we need to defer the decision pending resit assessment(s) or because we are missing information to enable us to make that decision. 

For year 1 and year 2 students your progression decision and course results will be published by 12 noon on Tuesday 6 July 2021

For year 3 students we hope to have all HCA progression decision and course results published by 12 noon on Tuesday 22 June 2021, however, please be aware that this might be dependent on information available to the Board of Examiners (particularly if you are taking a joint degree programme with another School) and that the official date for publication is 12 noon on Tuesday 6th July 2021.
