The University of Plymouth is committed to helping you achieve successful outcomes from your studies. However, there may be unforeseen circumstances, often outside the University’s control, which result in changes having to be made to your modules or programmes. 

The Student Protection Plan and the Student Contract

The Student Contract details the relationship between you and the University, and explains the University’s responsibilities and how programme changes beyond the University’s control are managed. In the event of any conflict between this Plan and the Student Contract then the Student Contract shall take priority.

Communicating changes

The University is committed to communicating any changes to you as early as possible, setting out clear information and options. We will take all reasonable steps to minimise disruption and to enable you to complete your studies as intended.

Protecting your interests

The Higher Education and Research Act 2017 requires the University to have a Student Protection Plan, like this Plan, to protect your interests and detail the steps we would take where significant material changes had to take place affecting the quality and/or continuation of your study.
