Important information regarding the Programme Specification and Regulations
This document contains all the regulations for a specific programme(s) and the associated regulations for individual modules that can be taken on a stand-alone basis as follows:
- The programme regulations are divided into the Programme Specification and the Detailed Regulations (which includes relevant Annexes). The Programme Specification gives the core regulatory information about the programme and is supplemented by the Detailed Regulations.
- Regulations concerning provision for individual modules is divided in to a Summary of provision for individual modules and the Detailed regulations for the provision of individual modules (which may include relevant Annexes).
- The document also contains a glossary which defines certain terms used within the document and a section with details about related documents and sources of information to which a student is likely to need to refer at different times in their studies.
Some regulations are general regulations, which mean that they apply for all University of London International Programmes at a given level of study. These regulations are marked with (GR) next to the paragraph number.
Students registered for any of the programmes covered by this programme specification and these detailed regulations are required to comply with procedures, deadlines and instructions issued by the University, including the University of London Regulations. The University is not responsible for any consequences arising from students' failure to comply with the regulations, procedures, deadlines or instructions.
See the section on related documents and sources of information at the end of this document.
On all matters where the regulations need to be interpreted, or are silent, the University's decision is final.
For the duration of a student's registration for a specific programme, core elements (set out in the Programme Specification) of that programme will remain un-changed unless appropriate consultation with students takes place. However, the Programme Specification and Regulations are reviewed and published annually, and certain programme details are subject to change. Each year's programme specification and detailed regulations replaces those of the previous year, and students must ensure that they always refer to the current year's programme specification and regulations. Changes for registered students will be introduced as follows:
- Two years' notice will be given when a module is withdrawn, when a syllabus is substantially amended, when a prerequisite for a module is introduced, and when the assessment method for a module is changed.
- Five years' notice will be given if the University decides to withdraw the programme.
- All other regulations may be amended without notice. If a change to the regulations is considered to have an adverse effect on a student, appropriate student consultation will take place prior to introducing the change to a current student cohort. Normally, major changes to a programme will only be introduced for a new cohort of students.
Examples of changes to the regulations which can be considered to have an adverse effect for registered students are significant changes to the structure of the programme, changes to the progression rules in the programme, changes to the weighting of modules and changes to pass marks or the classification of the award.
Students registered for the programmes covered by this programme specification and regulations are registered with the University of London International Academy. The University of London International Academy is based on a partnership between the University of London and certain Colleges of the University. The Colleges of the University of London and the University of London International Academy collaborate to deliver the University of London International Programmes.
All University of London International Programmes adhere to the University's agreed policies for academic programmes and awards.
