​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Introduction

What can you expect from university?

Our Student Charter aims to:

Nurture

We are committed to nurturing the holistic development of our students and staff – their academic, social, emotional, physical, cultural and spiritual well-being.

Creativity

We pursue excellence in the generation of new knowledge and encourage creativity, fun and the exploration of truth.

Sustainability

We are dedicated to creating sustainable futures within a flourishing university.

Service

We are responsive to the needs of all stakeholders and strive to enhance all aspects of our services to students, communities and the organisations that we work with.

Respect

We value each member of the university and are committed to relationships characterised by respect for the individual.

Trust

We promote a climate of trust and accountability underpinned by a commitment to open, honest and tr​ansparent communications.

This Charter outlines our commitment to providing a quality student experience, to support equality and diversity, and to building a strong sense of community within the University for our students. It also highlights our commitment to the sustainable development of the local communities of which we are part as well as playing an effective role in the wider sustainability agenda.

This charter has been developed in accordance with the recommendations from the Government’s ‘Student Charter Group’ that re​ported in January 2011, and in full partnership with the Students’ Union. The Student Charter is reviewed and approved annually by the University’s Academic Board.​​

COVID19​

Since the pandemic commenced the University has taken a wide range of steps in line with Government advice to support the health and wellbeing of our students and staff members.

It is possible that disruption resulting from the pandemic will continue to affect University operations during the academic year 2021/22, as such the ongoing commitments set out in this Charter must be read in the context of the exceptional circumstances. While all of the commitments set out in this Charter will continue to apply throughout the Academic Year 2021/22, the way in which the University (or the Students’ Union) implement and deliver those commitments may have to be varied to comply with changing Government restrictions.
