Modules are graded by level. A level 1 module is the equivalent to first year degree level, level 2 to second year and level 3 to third year. Masters level modules are at postgraduate level.
degree of complexity. The principal levels are the morpheme, the syntagm, the period, and the text.
A classification of whether an institution's programs are 4-year or higher (4 year), 2-but-less-than 4-year (2 year), or less than 2-year. Control (of institution) Sector
The stage of study within a programme at which a paper is offered, 100 level = first year degree level NB at NZSM and Victoria 400 level = BMus(Hons) papers and 500 level = Masters. At Massey 400 and 500 are reserved for the 4th and 5th years of some Bachelors degrees.
HE levels referred to on the site are 'postgraduate taught' (e.g. taught Masters such as MA or MSc), 'first degree' (e.g. BA, BSc, and enhanced first degrees such as MEng, MMath), and 'other undergraduate', which is a term for an HE award at a level lower than a first degree (e.g. Foundation degree or HND).
Classification based on the type of degree being sought—undergraduate, graduate, professional, or no degree.
A indicator of a students level of progress towards a degree within an academic program (undergraduates: freshmen, sophomore, junior, or senior, professionals: 1st year, 2nd year,3rd year or 4th year)
a position on a scale of intensity or amount or quality; "a moderate degree of intelligence"; "a high level of care is required"; "it is all a matter of degree"
a one year part-time course starting in Sept
a preferred subject for degree courses
a year of study for the quickest, most mature student group
In addition to having a credit weight of three, four, or six credits, each course is assigned a particular level: preparatory (100), junior (200), or senior (300 or 400).
units are often referred to by their level. Level 100 units are generally deemed to be at first-year level, level 200 at the second-year, level 300 as the third-year level.
a measure of academic achievement or advancement: e.g., first-year undergraduate level; all courses on the Programme are taught at Masters or M-level.
A term describing a combination of classification and entrance status. Student levels include new freshmen, other undergraduates, graduate, and professional.
An appropriate level will be assigned to a course according to agreed definitions. Normally level 1 equates with first year undergraduate study and level 3 with final year undergraduate work. Thus each course is defined in terms of both level and volume of credit.
The different stages at which a subject is taught which reflect how advanced a paper is (e.g. 100-level is the first level).^ Major Subject The subject chosen as the main area of study for a Bachelor's degree. A major subject is studied up to 300-level. Every subject has a set list of papers which you must take in order to major in that subject. This usually means a set number of 300-level papers, and particular requirements at the 200- and 100-levels. It may also include papers from other subjects. Choosing a major subject is one of the most significant decisions you will make. You do not necessarily have to make this decision in the first year, because there are usually several other subjects besides your major subject in your first year course. A well planned first year will allow you flexibility of choice, but at the same time will cover any prerequisites there may be for the 200-level and 300-level papers you may later decide to choose. Only three-year Bachelors' degrees have major subjects. Honours degrees and most postgraduate qualifications are described as being "in" a particular subject.
In an undergraduate degree course of three years duration, studies may generally be taken at three levels; level 1 representing the initial stage, up to level 3, the most advanced level. Level 4 indicates either the fourth level of study within an undergraduate program of four or more years duration, or study undertaken in an honours program or other undergraduate courses requiring a first degree for admission, or masters preliminary program. Level 5 is the fifth level of study in an undergraduate program and level 6 and above indicates study at postgraduate level
An index of the objectives that a student has studied in that strand. (ie, Level is an index of where a student is working in a CCC course. Level is relative to the course itself.)
Refers to the level of the program, i.e. undergraduate, professional, graduate
You may be more used to regarding degrees as consisting of three or four years full-time study. Because of increasingly flexible modes of study, especially through SCOTCAT schemes, we now use the word level rather than year and talk of the three or four levels of a Scottish degree (SD levels). This stops the confusion of talking of, for example, a part-timer taking three years to complete their first year of study
