Regulations and bye-laws change over time, so it is important to know which regulations apply to you. In general, it is those which are in force October of your first year - even if that is spent in the partner University. You may also find that the year of the regulations may not match the year of your first year October registration. For example, a student registering in October 2009 will fall under the 2008 regulations. If you are in any doubt about this please seek the advice of the local coordinator.




Semester Dates
