Entrance Requirements: http://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/undergraduate/degrees
Progression Requirements: Students are normally expected to have gained 120 credits from each year of study.
Students who do not progress into Honours may graduate after three years of full-time study, or a longer prescribed period of part-time study, with a B.A. in Arts, Humanities and Social Science.
All students are assigned a Personal Tutor on admission to the degree programme, who oversees the course of the student’s degree programme, offers advice on academic matters and should be the student’s first point of contact for course-related worries or concerns.
The School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures has a student support office, where students can go for advice on degree transfers, course changes, authorised interruption of studies, confirmation letters and general support. Information can be found at: http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments/literatures-languages-cultures/current-students/undergraduate-support
Student opinion is actively sought through participation in Staff-Student Liaison Committees, through the election of class- and tutorial-representatives, and by the wide circulation and review of detailed student questionnaires each semester.
In addition to having Persian as a single honours degree, Persian may be combined with other subjects in a Joint Honours degree. These joint degrees currently include:
Arabic and Persian
Persian and Anthropology
Persian and Politics
Persian Studies and English Literature
