Limitations Statute


Limitations on enrolments can be established under section 224(5) of the Education Act 1989 where the Council is satisfied that it is necessary to do so because of insufficiency of staff, accommodation or equipment, or section 224(12) where the Council has established places for foreign students in a programme whose continued availability is dependent on the fees payable by foreign students enrolled in it. The Council has delegated authority to approve limitations under section 224(5) to the Academic Board.

If places are still available after the published deadlines for applications to enrol, Ministry-funded students who have not met those deadlines, but who meet the admission, entry, re-entry and programme approval criteria for the relevant qualifications and papers, will be accepted in order of application, up until the relevant targets have been met.
