University Policies

A - Z of University Policies 

A policy can be defined as a statement of intent which can be used to guide decisions. A policy may stand on its own or be implemented through procedures, protocols or one of the other document categories shown beneath the 'Policies' category in the University's Hierachy of Documents (see the 'Policy Writing Guide' section in the menu to the left). 

While the A - Z list below is not exhaustive it does list the majority of the University's current policies. Those policies indicated as 'Staff Only' will require users to confirm their status as current University staff members prior to permitting viewing rights to the relevant policy.   

Caveat: Policies & Related Documentation - Please Note

The policies, protocols etc. listed below in the A-Z are not stand alone documents and are not intended to be understood or read in isolation. In many cases they are related to, and rely upon, procedures, forms, terms and conditions and other categories of documentation for their implementation and utility. When using this webpage to access a University policy, users should contact the 'Document Owner', as indicated for each policy on the A-Z list below, to obtain guidance on a particular policy's suite of related documentation.

Examples of University policies, in context with their related documentation, can be found on the Human Resources 'Policies and Procedures' webpage. The same caveat applies to the majority of policies listed below, regardless of  the Document Owner.
