About the Examination Regulations

This website contains the regulations of the University relating to the various degrees, diplomas and certificates conferred by the University together with regulations made by boards, and certain other relevant information. A new edition is published online annually at the beginning of Michaelmas term.

Changes to the Regulations

Approved changes and additions to the Examination Regulations are published from time to time in the University Gazette. Such changes are valid (if no objection is made to them) within fifteen days of their publication. Valid changes/additions will be incorporated into the online Examination Regulations as soon as possible with the aim of maintaining currency and accuracy of the Examination Regulations website. Should you wish to publish changes in the University Gazette please see the procedure for notifying amendments to Examination Regulations.

The authoritative version of the Examination Regulations is the online edition (as published in October of each year) plus updates from valid further changes published in the University Gazette. Each regulation has its own ‘version log’ page which records a brief description of all changes made to that regulation and references the relevant Gazette. The website takes precedence over examination regulations reproduced elsewhere e.g. in programme handbooks. Please contact Education Policy Support if you have any queries regarding this point.

The 'Grey Book'

The print version of the Examination Regulations, commonly referred to as 'the Grey Book', was published annually at the beginning of Michaelmas Term until October 2015. Print copies were provided to students and members of the collegiate University. The final edition of the print version was published in October 2015, and the website is now the authoritative version. A new edition will continue to be published online annually at the beginning of Michaelmas Term.
