Governing Instruments Review
In 2018/19 a comprehensive review of the Charter, Statutes and Ordinances was undertaken with a view to modernising and simplifying the University’s governing instruments.
The Privy Council approved the amendments to the Charter and Statutes with effect from 13 February 2019. The current version of the University’s Charter, Statutes and Ordinances took effect from this date.
Revisions to Governing Instruments Following Students' Union Legal Status Change
A number of revisions were required to the University's governing instruments to reflect the recent change in legal status of the Students' Union. Within the governing instruments, the constitution of the Students' Union is now referred to as the Memorandum and Articles of Association.
Amendments were made to Statues 14, 16, 21 and Ordinance 23 following approval of the Council at its meeting held on 14 July 2010. Amendments to the statues are pending approval of the Privy Council and are marked accordingly within the Calendar.
