Policy Writing Guides

This section of the website provides guidance in situations where new policies are being developed or current policies are being reviewed / amended. The guides shown here originate from, and have their basis upon, the Policy on the Formulation and Issuance of University Policies (also known as the 'Policy on Policies') which can be accessed at the link below.

It is acknowledged that full compliance with this policy, of which it is the first of its type within the University, will take a period of time subsequent to its approval by the Executive in October 2015. However, it is expected that as new policies are developed, or existing policies are amended, that they will adhere to the provisions set out in the 'Policy on Policies' and with reference to the guidelines, policy template and document hierarchy listed below.
