  • About this guide

    This is your course guide. It provides the basic but fundamental information about your course of study. This guide is yours for the duration of the course, we don’t re-issue it annually and if any information contained within were to change then we will write to you to explain so.

    In particular, if any important aspects relating to your modules were to change then we will inform you in accordance with the Code of Practice for the Management of Changes to Modules and Courses. The teaching and support teams which you will get to know over time will refer to this guide – it will be useful to you and we advise you to make good use of it throughout your studies.

    The Course Guide should be read in conjunction with the more general sources of information which relate to all students at the University. The Student Handbook is a very detailed reference point for all issues relating to your studies which aren’t specific to just your particular course. You might also want to refer to the Student Charter; the University’s Policies and Regulations and the University Assessment Handbook documents which will provide you with all of the information that we think you will need for your period of study here.

    If you need additional information, or you simply want to discuss elements of any of these documents or other aspects of your course, find that there is something you need to know, please contact your Faculty Student Services:

    Faculty Student Services

    We can help with the administration and organisation of your time at University – from enrolment and module registration, tuition fee enquiries, attendance support, course management and lifecycle queries, extenuating circumstances, leave of absence, transfers and changes, assignment submission, SAMs appointments, assessment and result queries, right through to Graduation.

    You can also come and talk to us for impartial advice and support if things are starting to go wrong and you’re not sure who else to talk to. The main thing to remember is that you are not alone. We see large numbers of students over the course of a year on a variety of issues, so please don’t be afraid to approach us.

    We are here to ensure that your transition into Higher Education is as smooth as possible. Normal office opening hours are Monday-Friday 08:45-17:00.
