The University will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver courses in accordance with the descriptions set out on this website. However, the University does not provide education to UK students on a commercial basis. It is also very largely dependent upon charitable and public funds, which the University has to manage in a way which is efficient and cost-effective, in the context of the provision of a diverse range of courses to a large number of students.
The University, therefore:
- reserves the right to make variations to the contents or methods of delivery
of courses, to discontinue courses and to merge or combine courses if such action
is reasonably considered to be necessary by the University (see 'Changes to Schemes
of Study'). If the University discontinues any course it will use its reasonable
endeavours to provide a suitable alternative course.
- cannot accept any liability for any circumstances beyond its reasonable control including, without limitation, any strike, lockout or other industrial action.
Changes to schemes of study
The information given on this website is believed correct at the time of publication, but the University reserves the right, at its discretion, at any time and for any reason, to make changes to the services offered by the University and set out on this website without prior notice including, but not limited to, the following:
- not to offer a scheme of study which fails to recruit the minimum number required
by regulation; or
- to make changes to syllabuses and courses for reasons including meeting technological
or academic developments or employers’ requirements particularly in specialist
options in the Final Year; or
- not to offer options, specialisms or elective courses within a scheme of study, where there is insufficient student demand.
Provision of services and campus locations
The campus locations and faculty structures for different study areas given throughout this website are believed correct at the time of publication. However, during a period of expansion and change or for administrative reasons, it may be necessary to review policies or in a small minority of cases relocate particular activities; students affected by any such change will be notified by the University as soon as is possible in advance. You are advised to contact the University if you need clarification of particular issues.
The University reserves the right to change without notice any information about its provisions contained on this website including (but without limitation) fees, or any rule or regulation pertaining to the standards for admission to, the requirements for the continuation of study in, and the requirements for the granting of degrees or diplomas in, any or all of its programmes of study. The publication of information on this website does not bind the University to the provision of programmes of study or course modules, or other facilities as listed herein.
The University will not be liable for any interruption in, or cancellation of, any academic activities as set forth on this website and related information where such interruption is caused by weather, fire, industrial action, lock-out, inability to procure materials or trades, restrictive laws or governmental regulations, actions taken by staff or students of the University or by others, civil unrest or disobedience, public health emergencies, or any other cause of any kind beyond the reasonable control of the University.
