Essential Information

All of the Higher Education courses detailed in this guide are awarded by Teesside University.

Full details of what this means for you can be found on the Teesside University website in the latest version of the Student Handbook.

Course Closure

In the interest of providing a positive experience for all of our students, we monitor the level of demand for all of our courses very closely. We have to balance flexibility within our programmes with our obligations to manage our funds in a way which is efficient and cost-effective in the context of the provision of a diverse range of courses to a large number of students. If we feel that the number of students enrolled on any course will have a negative impact upon their experience, we reserve the right to close the course before the start of the new academic year. Should this action be necessary, we would take this decision as early as possible and inform you immediately. Please know that closing a course due to low numbers is a rare circumstance and where this course of action is necessary, we would discuss it with you and offer any assistance that we can to help you to identify an alternative course at another institution.


Changes to Courses

To ensure that our courses are current and reflect the latest academic, technological, legislative, and social changes, they are all subject to annual review. These reviews may result in minor changes to content, methods of assessment or other details. Where these changes are necessary, we will advise you as early as possible with an open offer to discuss the impact they have on the course. While we hope you will see the value of any such changes, we respect your right to withdraw your application if you believed that the course no longer met your needs. You can cancel your place by contacting  any time before you have registered or within 14 days of your acceptance of the place if that is later. Should you decide to take this course of action, we will offer any assistance that we can to help you to identify an alternative course at another institution.
