Condonement helps to reduce the amount of assessment that you have to complete and reduces your likelihood of having to do Late Summer Assessments. Condonement is a common feature of many UK university degrees, and has been used at UCL in different ways for a number of years. We can only apply condonement when we know all of your module results for the year. If you fail any modules before then, you will automatically be entered to resit the failed modules.

Information about temporary changes to the regulations due to the Covid pandemic are available on the Covid page. Consequences of Failure Section Consequences of Failure Published for The Consequences of Failure regulations cover the provisions for students who do not meet the Progression and Award Requirements, where there are no Extenuating Circumstances material to that failure. Where a student requires Deferred Assessment and Reassessment, the volume of credits for the Deferred Assessment should not be taken into consideration in determining whether a student is required to Resit or Repeat. Where a student is Barred from the first attempt, reassessment must take the form of a Repeat with tuition and fees.

UCL departments adapted every part of the curriculum to prepare for education during the coronavirus pandemic. We designed our teaching and assessments to recognise that students are working remotely, or might not have access to normal facilities, or would not be able to sit in physical examination halls. However, the pandemic has worsened again, with new variants leading to much stricter lockdown measures. Covid 19 has led to significant changes to the way we have designed and delivered teaching and assessment for all students. The assessment mitigation and online examinations policies have been developed to be inclusive by design.
Focus on biology at the molecular and cellular level, examining and analysing the chemical processes within living organisms. Our biochemistry courses cover all aspects of the applied biochemistry and biotechnology industries, including commercialising technology, entrepreneurship, and intellectual property and patents, with lectures and case studies from business leaders and academics. All Biotechnology and Biochemistry students follow the same core modules for the first two years, including biological chemistry, molecular biology, integrative cell biology and genes and genomics. This gives you a solid grounding in the fundamental topics, and prepares you for advanced study.
