Chapter 12 - Award of Undergraduate Degrees ‘with Proficiency/Advanced Proficiency in Named Subject’

Proficiency/Advanced Proficiency in Language

Undergraduate students successfully passing a minimum of 60 credits of modules taken in the Foreign Language Centre, or spoken language modules taken in a College, in a single foreign language as part of their undergraduate degree programme may have the words ‘with proficiency in named foreign language’ added to their degree title on the recommendation of the relevant Assessment, Progression and Awarding Committee. Where 60 credits were at NQF level 6, the words ‘with advanced proficiency in named foreign language’ may be applied instead.

Proficiency in Applied Data Analysis

Undergraduate students successfully passing a minimum of 60 credits of modules taken from approved lists in the appropriate programme specifications may have the words ‘with proficiency in applied data analysis’ added to their degree title on the recommendation of the relevant Assessment, Progression and Awarding Committee. Further clarification can be found under Q-Step.

Modules taken for the ‘with proficiency in named subject’ pathway must be taken at two different levels, and must be passed. Condoned modules will not count towards qualification for the proficiency degree title.
