A Repeat Learner is a student who has outstanding modules from previous years.
A Repeat Learner will:
Be a fully registered learner of SETU (Waterford Campus)
Have full access to the academic resources of the University, including access to the Library and Moodle
Have the right to engage with lecturers as appropriate
Have the right, but not the obligation, unless specified on the Approved Course Schedule, to attend lectures if practical to do so
Pay a fee of €200 per 5 credit module, which is less than the full credit cost of attending, in order to recognise that the Repeat Learner category is intended to foster engagement rather than full attendance at the University.
Students wishing to repeat a Postgraduate Taught Masters thesis must contact the Repeat Learner Registration Office ([email protected]). The fee to repeat a Postgraduate Taught Masters Thesis is as per the advertised Postgraduate Fees.
You will have access to academic resources e.g. Moodle and Library.
You may pay your Repeat Learner fees by semester. e.g. Pay the full amount for semester one and then return in January to pay the fee for semster two.
There is an option in the online registration to "Pay for Semester One only first"
You will not be registered on modules until the fee has been paid.
Ordinarily, if you have failed 10 or less non-prerequisite credits (i.e. 2 x 5 credit modules or 1 x 10 credit module) you may be allowed to progress.
