University Policies and Procedures

Governance Services is not responsible for the development and review of the wide range of policies which provide a framework for University business. However, it does provide a framework in which policies should be formulated, structured, approved and reviewed, as well as one-stop document library through which the University’s key policies and regulations can be accessed.

The library or 'Policy Zone' is to be further developed and will act as a central reference point for all University policies.
