Student Registry

 
Fitness to Study procedures
The procedures are designed to deal with the small number of serious and difficult cases that arise each year.  The procedure is not for addressing academic performance issues or matters of disciple, and will only be invoked after informal College pastoral support has failed to resolve problems. Faculties and Departments which have concerns about a student’s fitness to study should raise the matter in the first instance, and as soon as possible, with the student’s College.
 
Faith-provision for University examinations (except those assessed by thesis and oral only)
This policy allows candidates to apply to the Student Registry for reasonable alternative examination arrangements to be made where the scheduled examination period coincides with a student’s religious observance. Students must submit a completed self-declaration form to the Student Registry, by published deadlines, countersigned by the College.  The Student Registry will consider the application and either seek to amend the timetable or, where this is not possible, discuss alternative arrangements with the College.  Where faculties and departments prepare their own timetable, we shall pass the information on for them to consider in accordance with the policy.  The Board of Examinations has the final decision.
