Master of Studies Degree: Notice

The General Board give notice that, on the recommendation of the Board of Continuing Education and with the concurrence of the Board of Graduate Studies, they have approved amendments of the general regulations for the degree of Master of Studies (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 469) as set out below. The purpose of these amendments is to remove the limit in numbers imposed when the M.St. Degree was introduced. Proposals for further M.St. Degrees are under active consideration in a number of fields and it is likely that the limit of 200 students will be reached within the next one to two years. Under the present regulations, an oral examination is a compulsory requirement of the examination for the degree. The regulations have been amended to allow the Examiners discretion to waive this requirement as is the case in many M.Phil. examinations. The regulations have been amended, with effect from 1 October 2000, as follows:

Regulation 3.

By deleting the last sentence.

Regulation 9.

By replacing sub-paragraph (c) by the following sentence:

At the discretion of the Examiners the examination may include an oral examination on the thesis and on the general field of knowledge within which it falls as prescribed in the appropriate special regulations.

Regulation 13.

By inserting at the beginning of the second sentence the words 'Where the examination includes an oral examination,'.

The Special Regulations for the examinations listed below (Statutes and Ordinances, pp. 471-2) have been amended, with effect from the same date, by inserting in each case at the beginning of the final sentence the words 'At the discretion of the Examiners'.
