Supporting your academic studies

Safety Net Policy - we have reviewed and updated our Safety Net Policy to make sure that no individual student is disadvantaged as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and you have the support you need during these unprecedented times. Safety Net Policy: Assessment and Degree Classification

Serious Adverse Circumstances (SACs) - sometimes situations outside of your control can arise that make it difficult to focus on your exams and assessments.  If this happens, you may wish to make the University aware of your situation so consideration can be given to support you. You can do this by submitting a SAC form. Find out more about Serious Adverse Circumstances.

Academic Integrity and Academic Misconduct - we are committed to upholding the academic standards of our awards and have support in place to help you undertake your studies and assessments with academic integrity. Most cases of academic misconduct are completely unintentional and could easily be prevented.  Find out more about what academic misconduct is, how to avoid it, and the support available:
