Student Regulations

When you register as a student of the University of South Wales, you are agreeing to comply with the Student Code of Practice and all other University regulations and procedures.  The University’s regulations and procedures outline our approach to learning, teaching and assessment as well as academic and non-academic conduct issues and complaints and appeals, and are designed to ensure the University acts fairly and consistently in relation to all students.


Support for Students with Disabilities

The Student Casework Unit is committed to providing an inclusive service to all our students. We recognise that engaging with student casework procedures (Appeals, Complaints etc.) can be a very stressful time. The guidance below details the number of ways in which the University can support those with a disability, through its casework procedures.

Unacceptable Behaviour

The University is committed to providing a fair, accessible and consistent service for all its students, in particular those who access student casework procedures. However, we also have a duty of care to our staff and consequently, we will not tolerate behaviour which is deemed to be unacceptable or unreasonable. The guidance below details how we manage the minority of students whose actions we consider unacceptable and/or unreasonable and are impeding the ability of staff to carry out the University’s procedures.
