Important terms to note:
A short Key Terms document is available and all students and applicants are encouraged to read this.
The Admissions Policy summarises Lancaster University Leipzig’s policy on admissions to full-time programmes, including routes for feedback and complaints. Further information is available in the Admissions Policy itself.
All students are required to act within the Student Discipline Regulations of the University which are subject to UK laws but take precedence over any other University code of practice, charter or rules.
The academic quality management framework described in the Manual of Academic Regulations and Procedures and the regulations and procedures contained, or referenced, in it apply to all categories of students, all academic programmes, and all types of award except where special regulations have been approved through the appropriate channels for specific types of provision, programmes, awards or for specific groups of students.
Guidance on Revisions to Academic Programmes and Modules definitions and processes associated with minor and major revisions to programmes and modules.
The University undertakes forward planning and, ordinarily, where a decision is taken to cease providing a course or module, or to withdraw from provision at a particular location, registered students currently on course will be taught to the conclusion of their studies and/or consulted on the change. However, the Office for Students requires the University to publish an approved Student Protection Plan to ‘preserve the continuation and quality of study for all of the provider’s students whenever a risk to the continued study of students crystallises’. Please refer to Lancaster’s current approved Student Protection Plan.
Students registering at the Lancaster University Leipzig Campus will be subject to the protection of Lancaster University Student Protection Plan with the same protection afforded to students at other overseas campuses. The Student Protection Plan will be updated to include the Leipzig campus shortly.
Lancaster University Leipzig uses third-party organisations to provide some of its information system, counselling, support, accommodation and transport services for students. In some cases, this may involve sharing the minimum required personal data with these third parties to enable their provision of service to students.
Registered students can access the Complaints Procedure.
Further guidance on your consumer rights as a student are available here.
These terms and conditions may be adjusted to comply with legal and regulatory frameworks and in relation to Lancaster University’s academic policies and procedures.
