Academic regulations ensure that all students are treated in a fair way – from your admission to the university, to assessments and the qualification that you are awarded. They describe the academic conduct expected of our students and staff, and set out criteria for making judgements about students’ academic performance. They also protect the academic standing of the university and the academic integrity of our awards.
General policies and guidance
General policies and guidance provide students with a safe and supportive environment to study, learn and socialise. All Brighton students and staff are expected to take responsibility for this, enabling everyone the opportunity to realise their full potential.
Understanding our Student Contract
These rules and regulations are complex and we do not expect you to know them all in detail. However, you need to know that they exist and their relevance to you as a student. To help you, we’ve summarised the most important elements in the main terms and conditions, and listed individual regulations and policies below. All this forms our Student Contract.
You may also have other contractual arrangements with other organisations, such as the Student Loans Company or accommodation provider. Make sure that you understand these separate arrangements.
