UG Handbook - Rules and responsibilities

Regulations and student discipline

When you enrol, you agree to accept and abide by the University Regulations. You should make sure you are familiar with Regulation 7: Student Discipline, and the associated procedures, which details the sorts of behaviour which are unacceptable in our community and explain our procedure for taking disciplinary action. We aim to maintain a community of respect in which students and staff can study, work and live safely together. We hope that your time at the University will not be affected by problems of student misconduct.


If you are dissatisfied with your experience of a service you have received as a student you should let us know. In the first instance you should speak to someone within the department or service where the issue occurred.

If you are dissatisfied with their response, you can find more information on how to make a complaint on our website.
