Welcome to Calendar Online. These pages contain the University's regulations.
The Calendar is divided into two volumes.
- Volume I contains the University's statutes, regulations, including student academic appeals procedures and committee membership.
- Volume II contains information relating to University regulations governing degree programmes, including links to degree frameworks and module descriptions.
Older versions of the University's regulations can be found in the Archive section.
Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in these webpages is correct for the academic year 2012/13. The University will use reasonable endeavours to deliver programmes and other services in accordance with the descriptions provided.
The University, however, reserves the right to make variations to programme contents, fees, entry requirements and methods of delivery, to discontinue or merge or combine programmes, and to make variations to regulations, both before and after a student's admission to the University, if such action is reasonably considered necessary by the University.
Should industrial action or other circumstances beyond the control of the University occur, and this interferes with the University's ability to deliver programmes or other services in accordance with the descriptions provided, the University will use all reasonable endeavours to minimise disruption as far as it is practical to do so.
