Degree Award Calculation

The overall award to each graduate of a Degree Programme is calculated using the GPA (Grade Point Average) system. Your performance across the range of modules you take will be calculated using this system, which is an average of grade-points awarded for each module weighted, according to the credit value of the modules for which the grades were approved – modules will count for 5, 10 or 15 credits. Each stage has 60 credits and you will receive a GPA at the end of each stage.

The BSc (Landscape Architecture) Degree calculation of honours is based on the final and penultimate stages of the programme, where the grade points are weighted so that the penultimate and final Stage modules each contribute 50% to the degree GPA.

BSc Landscape Architecture  Stage 3 (penultimate stage) worth 50% of overall degree award
Duration - 4 years Stage 4 (final stage) worth remaining 50% of overall degree award
