The Student Contract is an agreement between you and the University of Glasgow. You will be required to 'sign up' to it online each year as part of your academic registration.
The Student Contract sets out your rights and obligations as well as the University’s rights and obligations.
The Student Contract is legally binding and is made up of the following:
- Your offer from the University;
- Our Student Terms and Conditions;
- Our regulations as set out in the University Regulations.
You should read the Student Contract and its associated documents prior to accepting an offer of a place at the University and/or before registration. A wide range of information is covered, key areas are highlighted below.
The regulations for your degree will be published in the University Regulations under the relevant College section. This document used to be called the University Calendar and you may hear staff refer to the regulations in this way. You should refer to the edition of the Regulations (or previously the Calendar) for the year you first registered for your degree. If you have difficulty locating your degree regulations please contact the Senate Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The programme specification will also provide further details about your degree. See: https://www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/senateoffice/programmesearch/
Regulations relating to academic assessment for your degree are covered in the Code of Assessment.
