Under the University of Liverpool regulations regarding Master's and Doctoral programmes, students are allowed only ONE attempt to re-sit a module*.

If a student fails a module – i.e. receiving an end-of-module grade of less than 50 – he or she is permitted one additional attempt to pass the module. This is outlined in the Failing Modules section.

If a student does not pass the module on the second attempt, no further attempts are allowed.

Master's students who fail the same module twice should contact Student Support to discuss their options. Candidates on the Doctoral programmes may be considered for the award of Master of Research (MRes) provided they have 180 credit points gained from the successful completion of modules (i.e., not from the Doctoral Development Plan).

Students who fail the same module twice may still be considered by the Board of Examiners for an alternative award if they have earned enough Credit Points for their studies.

*Students who experience unforeseeable circumstances beyond their control can
request to re-sit a module; please see Extenuating Circumstances for details.
