Academic regulations

Important information about your rights and responsibilities as a student.

  • Your Course Handbook, which is available on your course Moodle site.

Each of these includes very important information which, as a student, you need to make sure you are aware of. Please take time to look through each section to make sure you know your rights and responsibilities as a student.
