Academic Support Office
The Academic Support Office (ASO) is responsible for supporting students and staff with all enquiries and administration relating to academic appeals, student complaints, student conduct, academic offences and deferral of examinations.
The ASO provides advice on the grounds, and procedures, to appeal against decisions made by the Academic Board panels. We also provide definitions of the various academic offences so students can take measures to avoid falling foul of the sanctions attributed to each.
References for students
The university is legally responsible for the content of a reference given on behalf of the university by a member of staff for a student. The academic reference guidelines provide guidance for staff.
The Academic Support Office is responsible for the managing and amending of the General Regulations and Procedures Affecting Students in collaboration with the Academic Board.
