The information contained in the Calendar is correct at the time of publication.
Certain information, and in particular that relating to fees, admission regulations
and papers, is subject to a continuous process of review. The University therefore
reserves the right to change its policies, procedures, statutes, regulations, papers
and any other content of the Calendar at any time. Any alterations and amendments
to the Calendar will be reflected in the web version,
which is the authoritative version.
Unless specifically stated otherwise, all policies, procedures, statutes and
regulations printed in the Calendar are effective from 1 January 2009 and supersede
those in any prior Calendar. Matters concerning enrolment and examinations apply to
the academic year for which the student is formally enrolled for the relevant paper(s).
While in most cases there are no specific time limits for completing qualifications,
over the years the degree structures and
papers may change in response to developments in their areas. Occasionally core papers or
requirements are changed or discontinued.
Candidates will have their overall programmes of study confirmed as meeting the
requirements for the award of a qualification on the basis of the relevant regulations
in the Calendar in their final year of study. However, if the regulations have changed
since the candidate first enrolled for the qualification, the relevant Dean may decide
in individual cases, under the Personal Programmes of Study Regulations and the
Delegation of Powers Statute,
to vary or waive particular requirements.
Students who are uncertain about whether papers passed under previous regulations
will meet current requirements should consult the relevant Chairperson of Department, Dean or Director.
Detailed transitional regulations will be printed in the Calendar from time to
time if substantial changes are made to the structure of a particular qualification.
