Terms and conditions

Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this Prospectus is correct at the time of going to press. 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, entry requirements and methods of delivery, and to discontinue, merge or combine programmes, both before and after a student’s admission to the University, if such action is reasonably considered necessary by the University.

In the event that, prior to the student commencing the first term of study for any programme described in this Prospectus, the University discontinues the programme, the student may either (1) withdraw from the University without any liability for fees; or (2) transfer to such other programme (if any) as may be offered by the University for which the student is qualified. If in these circumstances the student wishes to withdraw from the University and to enrol in a course at a different University, the University shall use its reasonable endeavours to assist the student.

Once the student has commenced the first term of study, if:

(a) the University’s ability to deliver programmes or other services in accordance with the descriptions provided is compromised by circumstances beyond the control of the University (eg, third party industrial action), the University will use all reasonable endeavours to minimise disruption as far as it is practical to do so;

(b) the programme is cancelled or substantially varied from that described in the Prospectus for reasons other than circumstances beyond the University's reasonable control, the University will use reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable replacement programme. If the student does not wish to accept the replacement programme, the student shall be entitled to withdraw from the programme. In the event of such withdrawal the University shall make an appropriate refund of course fees.

UCAS codes

The UCAS codes are correct at the time of going to press, but are subject to change, therefore you should check with the UCAS course search facility when you make your application.


If the University makes you an offer of a place, you must make sure that you are aware of any conditions on which the offer is based and that these conditions are met by the notified date, and that you’re aware of the terms of the offer, for example, the year in which you start your programme and the length of your programme. If you are uncertain, please contact the University for confirmation of the details, before you accept the offer.

Regulations for students

All students will be required to abide by the University’s Charter, Statutes, Ordinances and Regulations as a condition of enrolment. These include, without prejudice to the generality of that statement, academic regulations, arrangements for appeals and grievances, disciplinary regulations and regulations covering the use of the Library and IT facilities. Copies are available on request from the Registry and can be accessed via the University’s Calendar.

Students’ Guild

Registration as a full-time member of the University confers full membership of the Guild. However, in accordance with the terms of the Education Act 1994, all students of the University have the right not to be members of the Students’ Guild.

Those exercising that right will have the same access to premises and facilities and services provided by the Guild, but in accordance with the Constitution of the Guild will not be eligible to speak or vote in meetings of the Guild or participate in election of officers of the Guild or vote in referenda.

Car parking

Car parking on all our campuses is severely restricted and charged for and students are therefore discouraged from bringing a car to the University. Campus car-parking permits will not be issued to students in catered halls, in self-catering University accommodation or in private accommodation within a restricted area from the campus, with the exception of blue badge holders, unless there is a medical reason which makes a permit necessary. Further details can be found on our Student Car Parking web pages.
