Many universities don’t offer graded masters degrees. That means that you either pass or you fail. However some will award a distinction if the student has done exceptionally well. Fortunately the University of Liverpool does award distinctions. I feel this is a big plus for the degree especially as most students will be professionals putting a lot of time, effort and money into their study. What’s the point of working yourself half to death if that extra effort is not recognised?

I am also happy to report that the classification is indeed printed on the certificate itself. The wording goes like this:

… having satisfied the University requirements was admitted by resolution of the Senate to the Degree of Master of Science (Information Technology) with distinction on the fifteenth day of December 2010

Please keep the questions coming!
