The Academic Regulations provide a framework for the University to operate within to deliver programmes and make awards.
The Academic Regulations 2021/2022 and appendices are available to view here.
Areas covered within the Academic Regulations that directly affect students include:
- Enrolment and Attendance
- Assessment, Reassessment and Condonement
- Academic Malpractice
- Award Classification
- Results and Appeals
- Deferring, Suspending or Repeating Study
- Academic and Professional Exclusion
The Academic Regulations are approved on an annual basis by the University’s Academic Board. Although the regulations will be updated annually, changes will not be implemented to the disadvantage of students already registered.
The Academic Regulations are binding, no member of staff is empowered or permitted to operate outside of the terms set and only the Academic Board can agree amendments to the regulations.
There are also a number of appendices to the regulations and these are as equally binding as the central document.
