Student Records

Student and Academic Services maintain a comprehensive computerised record of all our students academic history.

Most of the information is captured when students register and the student files are updated to record academic progress throughout their time of study. The University treat student records as confidential and the strictest control is exercised over the release of any information relating to students

The records are maintained in accordance with the terms of our registration under the Data Protection Act 1998.
