Student policies and regulations

Legal and regulatory information

As a university, our commitment to you is important and we therefore need regulations, policies and codes of conduct, which are designed to protect and maintain both academic quality and your rights and responsibilities as students of our University.

You need to be aware of their existence and their relevance to you and your studies. Alongside this, you may also have other separate arrangements with external organisations, such as the Student Loans Company, which you will need to ensure that you fully understand.

Our academic regulations ensure that all students are treated in a fair way – from the moment you are accepted on to a course at the university, through to assessments and the qualification that you are awarded.

In addition to the above formal policies which form part of your student contract, there are a range of general policies aimed at supporting you during your time at the University of Central Lancashire and these are available via our Student Support site once you enrol with us.
