ACADEMIC REGISTRY

The Research Degrees Regulations

 

 

 

Eighteenth Edition (for 2017/18)

On this page, students and staff will find:

 

 

Introduction

The Research Degrees Regulations provide the regulatory framework for Anglia Ruskin’s postgraduate research provision, setting and maintaining the academic standard of all courses leading to an Anglia Ruskin award at all delivery points including UK and international Associate Colleges.

The Research Degrees Regulations are monitored and maintained by the Research Degrees Subcommittee (reporting to the Senate's Research Committee). Any proposals for revisions to the Research Degrees Regulations are developed by the Subcommittee and submitted to the Senate for formal approval.

 

Eighteenth Edition (September 2017)

The Senate approved amendments to the Research Degrees Regulations in June 2017 and these apply for the 2017/18 academic year:

  • Electronic versions - both of the full document and of individual sections - can be downloaded from the links below;
  • A limited number of printed copies are available for students to consult or collect from the Doctoral School, Faculty Offices and the iCentres;
  • Printed A5 copies will be distributed to all relevant members of academic staff and relevant support staff at Anglia Ruskin and its network of Associate Colleges during September 2017;
  • For each section, an alternative accessible format is also provided. These formats are lengthier in terms of page numbers (due to the increased line spacing throughout the text) but the actual text itself is identical in all formats.
