Legal Notice


The University makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that the information in the website and prospectuses is correct and current at the time of publishing/printing. Please note however that the content is naturally subject to change from time to time.

Course Information

The information on this website and in our prospectuses is correct at the time of publishing/printing and is provided for the guidance of students applying to or entering the University. The University makes all reasonable efforts to provide the degree schemes, tuition and learning support and research opportunities and other services and facilities with reasonable care and skill and in the way described in the website and prospectus.

Please note in particular that the Key Information Sets (KIS) data are provided by HEFCE, based on information provided by the University and other agencies. While we have made all reasonable efforts to ensure their accuracy, it is possible that they may include aggregate or national data, as well as data specific to the course.

The University shall be entitled if it reasonably considers it to be necessary (including in order to manage its resources and to improve the quality of its provision) to make reasonable changes to its course provision including:

  • to make changes to (for example) the content and syllabus of courses and methods of teaching and assessment (including in relation to placements);

  • to combine courses with others, suspend or discontinue courses (for example, because a key member of staff is unwell or leaves the University and cannot reasonably be replaced);

  • to make changes to its statutes, ordinances, regulations, policies and procedures (for example, in the light of changes in the law or the requirements of the University’s regulators)

  • to make changes to the terms of the financial awards it offers (for example, in light of Government announcements).

In the unlikely event that the University discontinues or does not provide a degree scheme or changes it significantly before it begins, the University will tell relevant individuals at the earliest possible opportunity. An individual will be entitled to withdraw from the degree scheme by telling the University in writing within a reasonable time of being informed of the change.

The University will make available to students such learning support and other services and facilities as it considers appropriate but may vary what it provides and how it provides it from time to time (for example, the University may consider it desirable to change the way it provides library or IT support).

The University shall not be liable for any delay in performing or non-performance of any of its obligations, other than an obligation to make a payment, if caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control including, without limitation, any of the following: act of God, governmental act, industrial action, strikes, lockouts, fire, flood, earthquake, bad weather conditions, explosion, civil commotion, war, terrorist attack, technical failure, or power failure.

The willingness of the University to consider an application is no guarantee of acceptance. Students are admitted to the University on the basis that the information they provide on their application form is complete and correct.

Personal staff and student webpages

The University does not monitor personal staff or student webpages published independently of their work at the University. The views and information on such webpages are not provided by the University and so do not constitute official University information, and need not reflect the views of the University. Consequently, the University does not and cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information.

These links are used to provide further information and are not intended to signify that the University endorses such websites and/or their content. The University takes no responsibility for any loss or damage suffered as a result of using the information published on any of the pages of the linked websites.
