Changes to policy and curriculum

Master of Engineering (M04) - qualification amendment

The Open University plans to increase the maximum amount of credit transfer that students can be awarded towards the Master of Engineering (M04).

Students with eligible previous study can now be awarded up to 240 credits towards Stages 1 and 2 of the Master of Engineering. However, standard qualification time limits will still apply to this qualification.

Why this is happening

We have made this change so that credit transfer rules for this qualification now align with the maximum credit transfer available towards the Bachelor of Engineering (Q65).

If students would like their award of credit transfer to be reassessed towards the Master of Engineering (M04), they should contact their Student Support Team. You can find out how to contact them on Contact the OU.
