The College of Humanities Taught Student Handbook 2018/19

This online student handbook provides advice and guidance about our policies and outlines the support we offer to all students studying a taught programme within the College of Humanities across both campuses. Please note that individual departments may also issue handbooks containing supplementary information specific to their students on matters such as referencing and forms of assessment.

We hope that you will find this handbook useful. We are always open to suggestions from students about how we can improve our programmes and policies. If you would like to comment or raise any concerns, please contact student representatives on your Student Staff Liaison Committee (details accessible via ELE), your personal tutor or your subject Director of Education.

The core areas that this student handbook covers are listed in the column on the left-hand side. Further face-to-face advice can be found:
