1.1 General Disclaimer

The information about courses provided in this website is intended to give potential applicants an overview of the programmes that the university intends to make available in the next academic year.

Every effort is made to ensure that the information in the website is accurate. However, it may become necessary for the university to make changes, for example to programme content, course delivery and fees, due to legitimate staffing, financial regulatory and academic reasons including (but not limited to) industrial action, lack of demand, departure of key personnel, change in government policy, withdrawal or reduction of funding, the requirements of the quality code of the Quality Assurance Agency or a change of law. The University will endeavour at all times to keep such changes to a minimum and to keep students informed appropriately.

If a course is not provided in whole or in part, the university will take such steps as are available to it to minimise the effect of any alteration or withdrawal. Such steps may include alterations to delivery of teaching or assessment, the offer of a place on an alternative course or the offer to transfer to another course at the university or elsewhere.

You will be entitled to decline to accept the changes to the programme and withdraw but not to receive a refund for those parts of the programme that you have completed whether or not you have passed any assessment.

3. Image Capture

The policy of the University is that the rights of staff, students and visitors to the University, or individuals and groups who are visited by the University’s representatives, should not be jeopardised by any University activity. The University further recognises its responsibilities towards children and young people.

Images may be captured during events organised and hosted by the University using film photography, digital photography, video or other medium and may be used on the University Websites, University prospectus or course brochures, other publicity material (such as internal and external newsletters), exhibition of student work or graduation ceremony brochure and may be provided to the media for publication in local or national newspapers or educational magazines.

The University acknowledges its responsibilities in capturing images by photography or other means under the provisions of the following legislation:

  • The Children and Young Persons Act 1963: The University undertakes to seek a licence where necessary from the appropriate local authority for any performance activity in which children are taking part and which may be recorded with a view to being broadcast, published or shown to the public.
  • The Protection of Children Act 1978: The University recognises that it is a criminal offence to take, permit to be taken, distribute, have in one’s possession or publish indecent photographs (including films and other imagery) of children.
  • The Human Rights Act 1998: The University recognises an individual’s rights to privacy as protected by this Act.
  • The Data Protection Act 1998: The University undertakes to inform all those whose images may be recorded (or their parents/guardians if under 18 years of age) of the purposes for which the images may be used by the University.

In this context the University informs all persons taking part in University activities that they may be photographed, filmed, videoed or otherwise captured in image form.

Where possible and practical to do so, the University seeks written consent to image capture. Where this is not possible for practical reasons, unless express objections are received, individuals attending an event at the University are deemed to have given their consent by attending or remaining at the event.

Any queries or complaints should be raised with the event host in the first instance.
