Taught programmes academic regulations
The taught programmes academic regulations outline how students can progress through their programme (course) and achieve their award, including how applicants and students can apply to have prior learning recognised.
The academic regulations apply to all undergraduate and taught postgraduate students. Some programmes have additional requirements, called programme-specific regulations, which are available from the programme leader or faculty’s Associate Professor (Quality).
