Interviews (vivas) for final-year students
Each Level 4 Project student will have an oral examination in late April or early May as a routine compulsory part of the module's summative assessment. In line with University policy, the Board of Examiners does not interview candidates as part of the process of degree classification in June. However, the external examiners may scrutinise individual candidates’ examination scripts and project work in order to assist the Board in its deliberations.
