The College of Humanities Taught Student Handbook 2019/20 

Welcome to the College of Humanities. This Handbook provides you with the information you will need as you pursue your studies with us – so please feel free to book-mark this page! The sections below cover everything from assessment policies to student representation. Where necessary, we have provided a link to detailed University-level guidance. Your own department or programme may also provide subject-specific guidance (see Subject Handbooks). The resources on the University's Study Zone and Library pages will also be helpful. 

If your query isn’t answered here, or if you would like to discuss your studies with someone in person, there are various other sources of help:
