Please note: due to the exceptional circumstances arising from the COVID-19 pandemic the University has taken a number of measures in 2020 and 2021 to protect our students' outcomes.
For students due to graduate in 2021 the University has introduced the Education Safeguard which sets out the measures that we are already taking, and the further measures that we may take at Boards of Examiners when all of the results are in.
Where students were graduated in 2020 the Senate Regulations were amended in line with the Safety Net Policy, and this will still apply to students who were due to graduate in 2020 but have been required to undertake further assessment in 2021.
Please check with your school to confirm which regulations will apply to your studies.
Senate Regulations are the rules which apply to your studies as a student of the University of Leicester. When you register as a student you agree to follow these regulations. This guide details what each regulation is for, should you need to refer to them during your studies. References to requirements of regulations are also detailed in various parts of your student handbook.
Please contact your department if you have a question about the Senate Regulations or the information they contain.
