The University has a number of regulations, procedures and policies which will guide you through many aspects of your time as a student. All of these are available through the University's website. This Handbook guides you through some of these procedures, and gives you links to where you can find the full regulations. It also gives you useful information that you may need during your time as a student, outlines our support to you, and gives you an introduction to the services and support provided by our Students' Union.
