					                       INTEGRATED MASTERS DEGREES


The University currently offers a small number of Integrated Masters Degrees (e.g.
the MChem and the MEng). These degrees are of five years duration and integrate
a period of undergraduate study (normally 4 years) with a Masters degree leading to
a single classified award at the end of the programme.

Such degrees are normally in professionally accredited areas of study and the
programmes offered by the University are all accredited by a PSB.

In terms of the Scottish Credit & Qualifications Framework, these awards at SCQF
level 11 and require a student to achieve a minimum of 600 credit points including at
least 120 credits at SCQF level 11 (AU level 5).

While not an absolute requirement, the Academic Standards Committee in approving
an Integrated Masters degree would normally look for appropriate exit routes for
students who wish to exit early from the programme e.g. with an Honours degree
after 4 years of study. For this reason, the ASC would normally look for the
programme to also meet the SCQF requirements for an Honours degree, namely at
least 180 of the credits being at SCQF levels 9 and 10 (AU levels 3 and 4) with at
least 90 of these being at SCQF level 10 (AU level 4).

Examples of programme prescriptions for two Integrated Masters degrees offered by
the University (an MChem and an MEng) are appended to this paper.

                  Students must also comply with the University General Regulations and the
                     Supplementary Regulations for the Degree of Master of Engineering.

                               The courses listed below are all compulsory for this degree.

                                                        Notes
     i.       All chemistry candidates are recommended, but not required, to take appropriate courses in
              Mathematics. For students who hold a pass in Mathematics at Higher or A-Level, MA 1002 and
              MA 1502 are recommended; for those who do not hold such a pass, MA 1004 and MA 1504 are
              recommended.
     ii.      At the discretion of the Head of Department, candidates who have fulfilled the conditions of
              Supplementary Science regulation 13, but have only 90 level 3 Chemistry credit points may be
              considered for admission to the level 4 Chemistry Programme.
