Financial Regulations

The University has Financial Regulations to ensure that it properly looks after the money it is paid by students, funders, donors, organisations and governments.

The UK Government will only pay money to the University if it has Financial Regulations in place. All staff and students should adhere to the regulations. The Financial Regulations and the Scheme of Delegation combine to inform the University's decision making processes. The Financial Policies below give further guidance on the operation of the Financial Regulations.
