A contract is formed between the University and you once you accept the offer of a place. The terms of this contract include the following and your acceptance of a place is expressly subject to them:
1 You will be required as a condition of enrolment to abide by, and to submit to, the University’s Charter, Statutes, Ordinances, Regulations and Rules, as amended from time to time by the Court or the Academic Council. These include, without prejudice to the generality of that statement, the academic regulations, arrangements for hearing appeals and grievances, codes of discipline, library and computing regulations and safety rules. Copies of all these documents are available in the University Library and you are encouraged to make yourself familiar with the various texts.
2 The University will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver courses and programmes of study in accordance with the descriptions set out in this prospectus. However, this document is produced at the earliest possible date to provide maximum assistance to intending applicants. It is inevitable that changes will occur between the date of printing and the start of the academic year to which it relates. Some changes may be due to resource constraints, others to staff changes or to developments in the relevant subject. In particular, as the University does not provide education to home and other EU students on a commercial basis, but is largely dependent on charitable and public funds, it must manage its resources in a way which is efficient and cost effective. In the context of the provision of a diverse range of courses to a large number of students, the University therefore reserves the right to vary the contents and delivery of programmes, to discontinue, merge or combine programmes and to introduce new programmes if such action is reasonably considered to be necessary by the University. Such changes may occur either before or after admission.
3 The University aims to offer all students the maximum flexibility of study within the relevant Regulations and the academic timetable is drawn up with this objective in mind. However, while every student will be able to take appropriate modules in the programme for which s(he) is registered, no timetable can guarantee that all modules advertised in the Calendar will be available to all students who are qualified to take them.
4 The University does not accept responsibility, and expressly excludes liability, for damage to student’s property or intellectual property, other than through the negligence of the University, its staff or agents, or for the consequences of any modification or cancellation of programmes or timetabling constraints as set out in the preceding paragraphs.
5 In the event that any term, condition or provision contained in this prospectus or elsewhere in the University’s Charter, Statutes, Ordinances, Regulations and Rules shall be held to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision shall, to that extent, be severed from the contract between you and the University without affecting the remaining terms and conditions which shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
