Progression & Awards Board

The Progression & Award Board (PAB)  is chaired by the Programme Chairperson and takes into account all marks from lecturers who teach on the specific programme of study at DCU and the feedback of relevant external examiners. At the end of each year, the PAB meets to collate and review grades in the various modules, and take all relevant information into consideration when approving the final results. The PAB has the discretion to make decisions in respect of individual students’ marks. 

All decisions of the PAB in respect of module marks are made with appropriate regard for the welfare of students, confidentiality, equity of treatment, and the maintenance of academic standards.  It is the responsibility of the student to notify the University, through the Registry or the Open Education Student Services Manager, by the due date of any extenuating circumstances that may have affected their academic performance in one or more modules. See extenuating circumstances in this guide.

Results remain provisional and ECTS credits are not applied until reviewed by the Progression and Award Board.
