Introduction to the Consolidated Academic Policies and Regulations


The College's Consolidated Academic Policies and Regulations (and any associated rules or procedures) govern the standards of the awards delivered by the College, as well as the responsibilities of students and the College in the delivery of these awards. The essential purpose of the College's Academic Policies and Regulations (CAPR) is to ensure equity of treatment for students at each stage of their education. This is done by setting out the criteria and defining the process for making judgements about students' academic performance and progression. The CAPR includes codes of practice, policies and academic regulations and are grouped in the sections below for ease of access.

The CAPR not only describes students' rights but also, in their best interest, outlines their responsibilities. For example the responsibility to attend classes and supervisory sessions, submit work for assessment and to pay money owing as well as to comply with administrative procedures.

The College will make every effort to ensure students are aware of the requirements of the policies and regulations but it is ultimately the students' responsibility to be aware of them and to seek advice, or an explanation or guidance, if they don't understand them.

The College works in partnership with the University of Plymouth in the award of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. The academic regulations and policies found in the CAPR have been agreed with the University of Plymouth as meeting the regulatory requirements required by the UK Quality Code for Higher Education and are aligned with those of the University. For students on programmes and awards validated by the University of Plymouth, the sections of the CAPR which have been agreed by the University as meeting its policy and regulatory requirements are shaded in grey for ease of identification.

As a validated partner of the University of Plymouth, the College follows the University academic regulations that relate to the progression and award of programmes and these can be found in the final section below.
