Academic Survival Guide

The Academic Survival Guide will help to explain some of the key things you need to know and where to go for more help if you need it.  

All areas of your studies are governed by a set of rules known as the Academic Regulations. They cover a vast range of issues you may come across in your time as a student. Their role is to assure the University’s academic standards but also to ensure that all of our students are treated consistently and equitably.

The Academic Survival guide will help to explain the terminology, the key things you need to know about these rules and where to go for more help if you need it.

The guide is based on the most frequently asked questions from students and was developed in partnership with The Students’ Union at UWE. The full set of regulations and the key facts to be aware of are available on the academic regulations and procedures web pages.
