The information contained in this Calendar is correct at the time of publication. Certain
information, and in particular that relating to fees, admission regulations and papers, is subject
to a continuous process of review. The University therefore reserves the right to change its policies,
procedures, statutes, regulations, papers and any other content of this Calendar at any time. Any alterations
and amendments to this Calendar will be reflected in the web version, which is the authoritative version.
Unless specifically stated otherwise, all policies, procedures, statutes and regulations
printed in this Calendar are effective from 1 January 2006 and supersede those in any prior
Calendar. Matters concerning enrolment and examinations apply to the academic year
for which the student is formally enrolled for the relevant paper(s).
While in most cases there are no specific time limits for completing qualifications, over
the years many Faculty/Schools and Departments change their degree structures and
papers in response to developments in their areas. Occasionally core papers or
requirements are changed or discontinued.
Candidates will have their overall programmes of study confirmed as meeting the
requirements for the award of a qualification on the basis of the relevant regulations in
the Calendar in their final year of study. However, if the regulations have changed since
the candidate first enrolled for the qualification, the relevant Dean may decide in
individual cases, under the Personal Programmes of Study Regulations and the
Delegation of Powers Statute 2005, to vary or waive particular requirements. Students
who are uncertain about whether papers passed under previous regulations will meet
current requirements should consult the relevant Chairperson of Department or Dean.
Detailed transitional regulations will be printed in the Calendar from time to time if
substantial changes are made to the structure of a particular qualification.
