Stage Notes

Stage One:        There will be a 3-4 day UK residential fieldtrip in this Stage.
                  Students on the Estate Management course may opt to switch to another course on the Urban Studies programme.

Stage Two:        Estate Management students who wish to change course to another within the programme can do so at the end of Stage 2 if they follow the “Catch-up”
                  arrangements.

Stage Three:      See below under “Award Requirements” concerning qualifying modules.
                  There will be a 5 to 7 day overseas residential fieldtrip in this Stage.
                  Students may opt to study abroad for part or all of this Stage under one of the School’s Exchange Programmes.
                  Direct entry students are able to study Stage 3 as full or part time distance/distributed learning students – see additional information for pattern of
                  delivery. The only content change involved for the off-campus students is that Valuation 2: Practice replaces the Urban Studies Year 3 Professional Project, and

                  Off-campus students taking Property Development 1 and 2 will be synoptically assessed by examination (100%) while the on-campus students are synoptically
                  assessed by examination (70%) and site-specific report (30%).

Stage Four:      All Stage 4 modules are qualifying modules.
                 Week 1 of Design Project 1 (Term 1) contains a collaborative group exercise.

                 The list of optional modules is the list approved by the Head of the School of the Built Environment.

      A candidate who accumulates 480 credits from 48 of the modules specified in the course structure shall be eligible to be considered for the award of an Honours degree.

     For students who started before October 2002, the class of Honours shall be determined by performance in the 12 modules taken in Stage 4. These are termed "the qualifying modules". In

      mark.
