Vice-Chancellor's Special Powers
Vice-Chancellor may give such direction, or make such provision
as he or she thinks fit for the relief of undue hardship where it
is shown to his or her satisfaction
||that an alteration or amendment to
statutes or regulations involving a change in a course of study
or in examination requirements has caused a candidate hardship,
||that official advice
has been given and acted upon, and it is later found that a candidate’s
course is not in accordance with the governing regulations and hardship
would be caused if the candidate were to be compelled to comply with
the full requirements of the regulations.
||The Vice-Chancellor may,
in consultation with the relevant Dean or Director, give such direction or make
such provision as he or she thinks fit where it is shown to his
or her satisfaction that an unusual and particular case has arisen
concerning a student’s enrolment, in consideration of which no relevant
provisions or regulations currently apply. The Vice-Chancellor will
report to the Academic Board any decisions made under the provisions
of this section.
||The candidate may appeal against the
decision of the Vice-Chancellor to the Council, which may make such
provision as it thinks fit.
