Amendments to the ordinances and regulations for 2010 - 2011

There have been amendments to the Ordinances and Regulations for 2010/2011, as set out below.

Ordinances

There have been no changes to the University’s Ordinances in 2010/11.

Regulations

Revision of University Regulations 1 to 6

A revision of the University’s Regulations 1 to 6 has been undertaken in order to achieve the following:

  • to present our regulations in plainer English;
  • to simplify and remove duplication, where possible and appropriate;
  • to cover taught and research degrees separately, a consequence of which is some reordering and re-numbering of sections;
  • to make provision for the new assessment regulations for students who are following programmes under the new modular scheme;
  • to reflect a change to responsibilities between a number of committees that are responsible for student and study-related policies;
  • to reflect the introduction of a new Mitigating Circumstances Policy;
  • to reflect minor changes in practice;
  • to introduce an Appendix to the regulations that lists the awards the University currently makes.

Regulations 3, 5 and 6

Regulations 3, 5 and 6 for taught programmes distinguish between those students whose programme operates under the previous modular framework and those on programmes operating under the new modular scheme. Students who enrolled on programmes prior to Autumn term 2010 will – regardless of whether their programmes were, at the time of their enrolment, operating under elements of the new modular scheme – continue their programmes under the old regulatory framework.

Regulation 4

There is no longer a separate set of regulations for part-time first degrees.

In order to avoid changing the numbering of regulations 5 to 13 and to all documents that refer to them, we note in the publication of the regulations that there is no Regulation 4.

Regulations 2.7.7 and 5.7

Amalgamated current and new regulations to cover the possibility of academic misconduct in relation to research students, to ensure clarity and comparability with taught students.

Regulation 7: University Discipline

Alteration to the wording of section 7.5 Disciplinary Advisory Committee as follows:

  • 2009/10
    a. The Disciplinary Advisory Committee consists of the Vice-Chancellor, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, three members selected from a panel of nine appointed by the Senate, and three students selected from a panel of six elected by the student body;
  • 2010/11
    b. The Disciplinary Advisory Committee consists of the Vice-Chancellor, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, three members selected from the members of the Senate, and three students selected from a panel of six elected by the student body;

Regulation 11
