Taught student policies and procedures
A number of policies, procedures, codes of practice and rules are specific to taught students. We are currently experiencing technical problems in displaying all our policies. If you cannot find a document, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are unclear of the application of any of these policies and procedures, you should first contact your personal tutor or staff in your parent school.
While we hope everything goes well with your studies, sometimes things dont quite go to plan. If youre thinking about leaving university - either temporarily or permanently - before completing your studies, support is available to help you make a decision thats right for you.
To make sure you look the part on your graduation day, order your academic dress in plenty of time and pick it up on the day of your ceremony.
