Important notes for applicants

Read important information about the terms and conditions when applying to a course.

The University undertakes to take all reasonable steps to provide educational services in the manner set out in the prospectus or in other documents issued by it, to appropriately enrolled students. It does not, however, guarantee the provision of such services. Should circumstances beyond the control of the University, (for example, but not limited to: industrial action by University staff or third parties, the departure of key members of University staff, power failure, acts of terrorism, damage to buildings or equipment, the acts of any governmental or local authority or courses which are subject to minimum numbers and those numbers cannot be achieved or maintained and in the opinion of the University are not viable as a result) interfere with its ability to provide such educational services, the University undertakes to use all reasonable steps to minimise the resultant disruption to those services, but will have no liability for any loss and / or damage suffered by any applicant or student as a result of those circumstances.

Should you become a student of the University, this notice shall be a term of any contract between you and the University. Any offer of a place at the University shall be subject to the student enrolment conditions and the University's rules and regulations as amended from time to time. View a copy of the University's admissions terms and conditions or request copies from Academic Registry at Shakespeare Street, Nottingham NG1 4FQ.

The University will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver the programme of study in accordance with the description applied to it in the University's prospectus for the academic year in which you begin the programme.

However, the University shall be entitled to:

  • make reasonable variations to the programme (including, without limitation, the content and syllabus of the programme, the location of the programme or the method of delivery of the programme)
  • discontinue the programme or decide not to provide the programme or combine the programme with other programmes of study, if the University considers this reasonably necessary in the context of its wider purposes. If the University discontinues the programme it will use reasonable endeavours to provide you with a suitable alternative.

For the avoidance of doubt, this statement should not be interpreted to exclude any liability which the University is not permitted by law to exclude (e.g. death or personal injury caused by the University's negligence, fraud and / or fraudulent misrepresentation).
