Information set out in the prospectus and on the University website is accurate at the date of publication. However, changes to programmes, modules, University services and the content of the prospectus may be necessary, for example, to meet the requirements of an accrediting body or to keep programme contemporary by updating practices or areas of study.
Changes to programmes or modules may also be needed because of circumstances outside the reasonable control of the University, such as a key member of staff leaving the University or being unable to teach (where the programme or module is reliant on that person’s expertise) or where the minimum or maximum number of students needed to ensure a good educational or student experience has not been met or has been exceeded. Other circumstances outside the reasonable control of the University include unexpected lack of funding, industrial action, severe weather, fire, civil disorder, war, political unrest, government restrictions or serious concern about the transmission of serious illness making a programme unsafe to deliver. If changes to your programme are made after you have accepted your offer, the University will try to give you early notification of those changes and, where necessary, minimise their impact by offering suitable alternative arrangements, helping you find an alternative programme or university or providing compensation where it believes there is a fair case to do so.
