Contractual Relationship with Students

We make a range of commitments to you as a student, and we also have expectations of our students at Ulster.

Details of our courses and facilities are set out in the prospectuses and other course documentation. We will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver courses in accordance with the descriptions set out in these prospectuses. However, the University is very largely dependent upon public and charitable funds, which we have to manage in a way which is efficient and cost-effective, in the context of the provision of a diverse range of courses to a large number of students. We therefore reserve the right to make variations to the content or methods of delivery or assessment of courses, to discontinue courses and to merge or combine courses, if such action is reasonably considered to be necessary by the University in the context of its wider purposes. If we discontinue any course, we will use reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable alternative course. Where courses include a period of placement, we cannot guarantee complete success in finding placements for all students.

The University has important internal regulations for student discipline, examinations, library and so on. These are set out in booklets entitled Charter Statutes, Ordinances and Regulations 

Other codes and rules, for instance about the acceptable use of computers and health and safety supplement the legal framework.

Applicants who accept an offer of admission thereby agree to abide by the University’s internal regulations and will be required to signify their agreement in writing at the time of initial enrolment.

The University cannot accept responsibility, and expressly excludes liability for theft of student property, damage to students’ property, transfer of computer viruses to students’ equipment or liability for breach of contract. You are advised to consider insuring your property against theft and damage.
