It also provides helpful information on matters such as housing, finance, leisure, healthcare and support facilities.


Academic Integrity:

Academic Integrity is integral to studying at University and a guiding principle of academic life. At its most basic, academic integrity describes acting with honesty and responsibility in one’s own Academic Work (which throughout these Regulations means work undertaken for formative and summative assessments, your academic practice and your academic working relations with others). Please familiarise yourself with the regulations governing Academic Integrity below.



Blackboard is a web based service where you may find materials for your course, as well as interactive features such as online tests and discussion boards.
