The Undergraduate and Postgraduate Prospectuses are intended to help you choose your course of study at the University of Glasgow. They do not replace the University Calendar as a statement of the University regulations. All students will be required as a condition of enrolment to abide by, and to submit to the procedures of, the University's rules and regulations, as amended from time to time. A copy of the current regulations is available at: www.gla.ac.uk/calendar/ or on request, from the Registry: www.gla.ac.uk/registry/

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained within the prospectuses but it is subject to alteration without notice. The University will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver courses in accordance with the descriptions set out in the prospectuses. The University, however, reserves the right to make variations to the content or methods of delivery of courses, to discontinue courses and to merge or combine courses, if such action is reasonably considered to be necessary by the University. If the University discontinues any course, it will use reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable alternative course. In the event of industrial action or other circumstances beyond the control of the University that interferes with itsability to provide these courses or services, the University will undertake to minimise disruption as far as is practicable.

The University prospectuses are normally published circa 18 months prior to the academic year to which they relate. Any changes such as newly announced courses of study or changes to contact details will be incorporated into our website. Changes may be made to Entrance Requirements during the summer months post publication of the printed prospectus, but before commencement of the Admissions Cycle to which the prospectus relates ( Admissions Cycle commences in October each year). These changes will be incorporated into our website prior to October. No changes will be made to Entry Requirements after commencement of the Admissions Cycle.

Programme alteration or discontinuation

The University of Glasgow endeavours to run all programmes advertised at the beginning of an application cycle. However, all programmes run subject to a minimum number of students registering for the programme and academic staff being in place to run the programme. Therefore, in exceptional circumstances, the University may withdraw a programme during an application cycle.

If a programme is withdrawn or altered then the University will inform any applicants at the earliest opportunity of the withdrawal or significant change. In cases where a programme is withdrawn completely then all offer holders will be offered the closest alternative that is available. If an alternative programme is not available then Admissions will offer advice regarding any other suitable programmes.

If an applicant does not wish to accept the University's offer of a replacement programme or the University is unable to offer a replacement programme, the University will withdraw the application.

In the event that an application is withdrawn due to a programme alteration or withdrawal, the University will offer a full refund of any application fee and/or deposit paid.

Programmes may occasionally be advertised and accept applications prior to full approval by the University’s Senate. In these cases it will be made clear on the University’s website and in the offer letters that the programme is subject to approval. In the unlikely event that the programme is not approved then all applications will be withdrawn and applicants offered an opportunity to apply for an alternative programme where one is available.
