Additional information for postgraduate taught students
Most postgraduate taught (PGT) courses run from September to September. As such, the Faculty Assessment Boards for these courses meet between October and December, after the official end date of the course.
Some departments will release some module results before the official end of your course, and some departments will wait until after your course end date. In all cases, you should not expect to receive your degree award until after the official end of your course.
