Academic Regulations

Any validated programme leading to an award of the University of Wales will operate in accordance with the Academic Regulations, Protocols and Procedures of the University.

These documents contain rules determined by the Academic Board of the University which relate to the admission and assessment of students and the rights of students.

Having rules in place which are the same for all University of Wales programmes of the same level means that the University can be assured that the standards of its programmes are the same regardless of where in the world they are delivered.
