The University and our students form a contractual relationship when we enrol them as a member of LSBU. The terms of the contract include the following and accepting a place at our University is expressly subject to them.
You are required as a condition of enrolment to submit to and abide by the University's Regulations and Rules, as amended from time to time by our Board of Governors and Academic Board. These include Academic Regulations, arrangements for hearing appeals and grievances, codes of discipline, library and computing regulations and safety rules. Copies of all these documents are available in our university libraries and in the Regulations section of our student portal, My LSBU and you are encouraged to make yourself familiar with various texts.
The University will use reasonable endeavours to deliver courses and programmes of study in accordance with descriptions set out in our print prospectuses. However, these documents are produced at the earliest possible date to provide maximum information to intending applicants. It is inevitable that changes will occur between the date of printing and the start of the related academic year. Some changes may be due to resource constraints, others to staff changes or developments in relevant subjects. In the context of the provision of a diverse range of courses to a large number of students, the University therefore reserves the right to vary the contents and delivery of courses, to discontinue, merge or combine courses and to introduce new courses if such action is reasonably considered to be necessary by the University. In such cases the University will use reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable alternative course. Such changes may occur either before or after admission.
The University undertakes to use reasonable endeavours to provide educational services. It does not, however, guarantee the provision of such services. Should industrial action or circumstances beyond the control of the University interfere with its ability to provide educational services, the University undertakes to use reasonable endeavours to minimise the resultant disruption to those services.
The University aims to offer students the maximum flexibility of study within the relevant regulations and the academic timetable is drawn up with this objective in mind. However, no timetable can guarantee that all units advertised will be available to all students who are qualified to take them.
The University does not accept responsibility, and expressly excludes liability, for loss or damage to students' property or intellectual property, other than through the negligence of the University, its staff or agents, or for the consequences of any modification or cancellation of courses or timetabling constraints as set out in the preceding paragraphs.
