C1.1.2 Scope

  • 2.1 These regulations apply to all students undertaking any form of assessment, either under formal examination conditions, or as assessed coursework (including but not limited to, written coursework, practical work, OSCEs, models, sculpture, artwork); whether formative or summative, as part of their studies for credit towards an award of the University.  These regulations are intended to be read alongside the University’s Core Regulations for the Assessment of Students which can be found at /regulations.

    2.2 Institutions that deliver programmes leading to an award of, or validated by, the University are expected to have academic conduct regulations and procedures sympathetic and complementary to these regulations. Students or staff members in these institutions may refer the case to these regulations if they have exhausted their own institution’s internal academic conduct procedure.  In these cases, the case will be heard by the Appeal Committee. 

    2.3 For the purpose of these regulations, the BSc Applied Accounting course will be regarded as a separate institution and therefore timescales and penalties shall vary.  

    2.4 Students enrolled on Research Degree programmes are also expected to adhere to the Research regulations which can be found in Section B here: /regulations/current/specific/

    Where a breach of the Research regulations has been found, research students may be referred to these conduct procedures and the case will be heard by the Appeal Committee. 

    2.5 Some students enrolled on courses which lead to professional registration are also required to adhere to the Standards of Conduct: Fitness to Practise Regulations.   Any breach of the Academic Conduct Regulations may result in a referral to the Standards of Conduct: Fitness to Practice Regulations. As such, the full case file would be shared with appropriate University staff. 

    2.6 The University shall, at its sole discretion, decide which set of regulations are the most appropriate in the circumstances.   Therefore, cases raised through the Conduct Regulations may be referred to other University procedures.

    2.7 The University reserves the right to revisit an award in exceptional circumstances. Therefore, these regulations may apply to former students who are no longer enrolled with the University.
