As part of the University's response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, a number of exceptional regulations have now been introduced to ensure that teaching and learning continues throughout this period. This includes assessment and the subsequent progression and degree classification results which arise from this.

All of the exceptional regulations are available on the Exams and Assessments FAQ page.

Our academic regulations govern the vast majority of our taught courses and help to ensure consistency in our quality and academic standards.

Enrolment on a University course is conditional on students agreeing to familiarise themselves and complying with all University regulations and policies.
