Regulations for Study

The rules and regulations that all Brookes students need to know

A framework for learning, teaching and assessment

The University’s Regulations for Study, together with its associated rules and procedures, form a comprehensive framework for learning, teaching and assessment, and other aspects of the student experience, which all staff and students must abide by.

As a student of Oxford Brookes University, you are expected to familiarise yourself with the rules and regulations which apply to you during your time here. This is essential information, so please take the time to make yourself aware of the regulations that apply to your programme of study, and to read any programme or module handbooks issued to you.

We have tried to write these regulations as clearly as possible and to reflect the ‘student journey’ through your programme of study, but we know that regulations can appear a little overwhelming at first sight. There is a range of support available to help you interpret the Regulations and navigate the University procedures - the University Handbook provides an overview of the most important regulations and policies, and a quick guide to the key support services and their contact details.

Please do ask an appropriate member of staff if there is something you don’t understand - for example, you can speak to your Module Leader, Academic Adviser or Programme Administrator within your Department, or go to the student homepage for links to other professional services teams who can provide advice.

If you are studying on a programme leading to an Oxford Brookes award at one of our partner organisations, some of the regulations and procedures described here may be applied differently to meet local requirements - please refer to your programme handbook for details and ask for advice from your local tutors or Registry staff if you need clarification.
