Handbook of Student Regulations

Regulations for Students Enrolling for Academic Year 2019-20

The regulations below will apply to matters arising in and decisions relating to the academic year 2019-20. Upon enrolment, the relevant Handbook is the primary contract between you and the University, so you may wish to download a copy for your records. The University however, updates these regulations from time to time, and the definitive versions of the ‘Handbook of Student Regulations’ appear below. Please ensure you select the correct version, Taught or Research Programmes.

Students on professional programmes should note that ‘Section 9: Fitness to Practise Procedures’ is draft only and awaiting final approval. If you enrol before the finalised version is published your Faculty will be in touch to let you know when it is has been published and ask you to accept the finalised version.

What are the Handbooks of Student Regulations? 

These Handbooks detail the rights and obligations of every student as a member of the University community and explains the rules of conduct to be observed by students. It is therefore important that you familiarise yourself with these regulations along with other official University documents (e.g. Programme Handbooks, Assessment Regulations and Guidance, and other Terms and Conditions) to ensure you understand what is expected of you and what you can expect from the University.    

How do they apply to me (as a student)?

Most of these regulations apply to your life as a student. There are however rare occasions when the University may take action against you for behaviour in your private life or in the wider community, for example, when your behaviour brings the University into disrepute, raises fitness to practise concerns (students on professional programmes only), or indicates you may present a risk to the University community.

How can I navigate these regulations?

The contents of these Handbooks can be easily navigated by using the bookmarks to the left. Alternatively, you can click on the relevant Section or Appendix on the contents page, all of which are hyperlinked. You can return to the contents page at any time by clicking on the bottom right hand corner of any page. If you are viewing these documents on a mobile device you may lose these functions, unless you have an Adobe App installed.
