What are policy documents?

  • Policies are rules or principles that explain statutory, regulatory or organisational requirements.

  • Guidelines provide more detailed information about how to effectively implement aspects of a policy or procedure.

Policy documents should be considered with reference to relevant Regulations and the University Statutes.
