Rules and regulations

Queen Mary's rules and regulations set out your responsibilities as a student, as well as stating the university’s responsibilities to you. resize_265px 

You can find out what to do if you need to make a complaint and the steps that you can take to resolve things informally first.

More formal procedures apply if you need to appeal a decision about your grades, report a change in your personal circumstances or if you are said to have committed an assessment offence

Some rules, such as the Code of Student Discipline [PDF] and the Academic Regulations, apply to all students, whereas the Professional Capability and Fitness to Practise Regulations [PDF] apply specifically to medical and dental students. The Code of Practice for Research Degree Programmes [PDF] covers postgraduate research students.   

Queen Mary's data protection rules cover how your personal information is stored and used.

Academic regulations

The Academic Regulations incorporate both the general regulations that apply to students of Queen Mary, and the regulations for assessment, progression and award. They apply to all undergraduate and postgraduate programmes leading to awards of Queen Mary, or the award of academic credit, and to the students registered on those programmes.

Code of student discipline

The Code of Student Discipline [PDF] applies to all students and explains what is meant by misconduct and what will happen if a complaint is made.

The code helps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of students, staff and the public. The code also helps to protect Queen Mary’s reputation.
