Tab Content: Council Members
Council are collectively responsible for the University. Members need to be satisfied that processes and procedures are in place which are sufficient and effective in running the business of the University. As the University is an exempt charity, all Council members are Trustees of the University.
Learn more about our governing body including the role of Council members, biographies on members by visiting our Council members page. The Register of Interests 2019-20 is also available.
Tab Content: Charter and Statutes
The constitutional framework within which we operate is based upon our Charter, Statutes and Ordinances.
The Charter, first granted in 1964, sets out the purpose and powers of the University. The Statutes underpin the Charter and both the Charter and the Statutes are approved by the Privy Council.
Ordinances support the Charter and Statutes and are created and approved by the Council. Other regulations may be created and approved by Council or by other committees on delegated authority from the Council.
