Our responsibilities

Our responsibilities to you include legal obligations under consumer law, which include making sure you can easily find important information about:

  • The University
  • Your course
  • Other aspects of University life.

When you accept an offer of a place, you enter into a contract with the University which includes obligations on both sides. The main terms you need to be aware of are set out in the Terms and Conditions which are available below. The Terms and Conditions also explain which documents form the contract you will be entering with the University.

Your responsibilities as a student include:

  • Attending the University and engaging fully with your studies whether in a formal teaching environment, in group work with your peers or in self-directed study
  • Following the rules, regulations, policies and procedures applicable to you as a student (the Academic Regulations and other relevant policies and procedures).
  • Paying your fees.

It is possible that COVID-19 and the emerging variants may continue to cause disruption. Information about the arrangements the University has put in place for the 2021/22 academic year which will allow us to safely deliver our educational services to our students can be found here. Should the impact of COVID-19 continue in subsequent years, any additional and/or alternative arrangements put in place by the University in response will be in accordance with the latest government public health advice, pandemic-related/health and safety legislation, the University’s own assessment of risk and the terms and conditions of the student contract. Further information will be provided on the Student Information section of the University’s website as soon as it becomes available.
