The University’s regulations, policies and procedures are aligned with the Quality Code published by the Quality Assurance Agency which is the body that monitors and advises institutions on standards and quality.


The University provides clear and concise information for all students, about the rules and regulations related to your study including specific academic and general University regulations, policies and procedures. The University’s Academic Regulations govern our programmes and are supported with helpful guidance. They are important and you will need to refer to them throughout your degree to achieve success.

An undergraduate degree (also referred to as a first degree or bachelor’s degree) typically takes at least three or four years to complete. A postgraduate taught degree (also referred to as a Master's degree) normally follows undergraduate study and typically takes one to two years to complete. Students gain advanced academic knowledge and/or professional expertise and study more independently. A postgraduate qualification is ideal for students who wish to gain a deeper knowledge in an area and improve their employability.
