Academic regulations and procedures

These regulations, policies and procedures include those affecting both your academic experience and wider university life.

Please note, these are regulations based on academic progression and awards. Students subject to immigration control should be aware that there may be additional restrictions on their progression. Information about current Tier 4 requirements is available from the International Student Advice (ISA).

These are the standard University academic regulations. Students must also refer to their programme documentation, where any non-standard regulations will be explained.
