THE UNIVERSITY of EDINBURGH
DEGREE REGULATIONS & PROGRAMMES OF STUDY 2017/2018
Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in the Degree Regulations and Programmes of Study is accurate. The University will take all reasonable steps to provide the educational services described herein. However, the content of individual courses and the programme for any given degree are under constant academic review in light of current circumstances and may change from time to time, with some programmes and courses being modified, discontinued or replaced.
The Degree Regulations and Programmes of Study continues to be updated until the end of January, at which point it is archived. An earlier master archive is taken on 1 September.
The University does not generally provide education to UK and EU students on a commercial basis. It is also very largely dependent on public funds which the University has to manage in a way which is efficient and cost-effective and on charitable and other sources of funding over which the University may have little control.
For all the foregoing reasons, the University reserves the right not to provide any particular programme, course, curriculum or facility, to make variations to the content or method of delivery of programmes or courses, to discontinue programmes or courses and to merge or combine programmes or courses if such action is reasonably considered to be necessary by the University. If the University discontinues any programme or course it will use reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable alternative programme or course and will take all reasonable steps to minimise any disruption which might result from such changes.
For full details of the University’s Terms and Conditions of Admission, please refer to the current Undergraduate or Postgraduate Prospectus.
