Archived University Regulations (Pre-2018/19)

For September 2018 the University Regulations have been reorganised into a new structure: The Keele Academic Regulations and Polices (KARP) Index. All the current Regulations of the Univeristy can now be found here.

The changes to the University Regulations have been made as part of the Regulations Review Project. Regulations have been renumbered and, in some cases, renamed. No other changes have been made to the content of the regulations unless stated below in the 'Changes to Regulations' section.

To support members of the univeristy in becoming familiar with the new numbering system, we have created a helpful guide for looking up the new regulations using their former title and/or number. You can find this guide here. Alternatively, an archived list of all former regulations is still available and can be used to navigate to the new, corresponding regulation.

Changes to Regulations 2016/2017

The table below provides details of changes and updates made to the University Regulations during the current academic year. Unless otherwise indicated, the changes take effect immediately. Please ensure that you are familiar with any new or revised regulations that apply to your programme of study.

For full details of changes and updates made to the University Regulations during 2016/2017 please follow the link here.
