Further points of clarification and interpretation relevant to this specific programme are given below: Eligibility for a specific Honours award To be eligible for a specialist Honours award, a student must pass, or be accredited with passes, in both the contributory modules (shown below) for the award in question and pass the project module (without compensation) for the award – except in the case of BSc (hons) Computer Studies Award Compulsory Modules Taught Project Sem Core Elective BSc Computer Science 6COM0280 6COM0282 A 2 x 15pts from CS core 1 x 15 pts any B 1 x 15pts from CS core 1 x 15 pts any BSc Computer Science 6COM0280 6COM0283 A 1 x 15pts SE core 1 x 15 pts any (Software Engineering) 1 x 15pts from CS core B 1 x 15pts SE core 1 x 15 pts any BSc Computer Science 6COM0280 6COM0287 A 1 x 15pts NW core 1 x 15 pts any (Networks) 1 x 15pts from CS core B 1 x 15pts NW core 1 x 15 pts any BSc Computer Science 6COM0280 6COM0286 A 1 x 15pts AI core 1 x 15 pts any (Artificial Intelligence) 1 x 15pts from CS core B 1 x 15pts AI core 1 x 15 pts any BSc Information Technology 6COM0280 6COM0285 A 2 x 15pts from IT core 1 x 15 pts any B 1 x 15pts from IT core 1 x 15 pts any BSc Information Technology 6COM0280 6COM0278 A 1 x 15pts ES core 1 x 15 pts any (Entertainment Systems) 1 x 15pts from IT core B 1 x 15pts ES core 1 x 15 pts any BSc Information Technology 6COM0280 6COM0284 A 1 x 15pts WS core 1 x 15 pts any (Web-based Systems) 1 x 15pts from IT core B 1 x 15pts WS core 1 x 15 pts any BSc Information Technology 6COM0280 6COM0281 A 1 x 15pts BS core 1 x 15 pts any (Business Systems) 1 x 15pts from IT core B 1 x 15pts BS core 1 x 15 pts any BSc Computer Studies - - A 4 x 15 pts any B 4 x 15 pts follow on from semester A Eligibility for MEng awards In addition to achieving the prescribed number of credits for the MEng awards students must satisfactorily complete the Team Project and Individual Project modules; a compensated pass cannot be awarded in these modules. Equivalence of modules with the BSc Honours Computer Science On-line (TCCSITW) A separate programme is the BSc Honours Computer Science (On-line), providing a route to the same awards as the BSc Honours Computer Science, but via study on-line and without attendance at the University. Students at level 6 of the BSc Honours Computer Science whose circumstances preclude continuing attendance at the University, such as students who have taken up full-time employment or have returned overseas, may, after seeking academic guidance from a programme officer, be permitted to complete study on the programme by taking the equivalent on-line modules, where these are available. Modules offered in this online mode are equivalent to their campus based alternatives (module pairs delivered in Semester A and B) in name, with the online version having the suffix V1.6 / Main Programme Specification / January 2013 / AS © University of Hertfordshire 2012 32

“(online)” in the module name, for example, the campus based “Quantum Computing A” AND “Quantum Computing B” is equivalent to the online module “Quantum Computing(COM)”. Where any of these modules are taken as equivalents following the award of fail grades in level 6 modules on the BSc Honours Computer Science, assessment and grading in these equivalent modules will be governed by the regulations in UPR AS14, paragraph D5.3.
