Quality Manual

The Quality Manual sets out the regulations, policies and procedures around teaching and learning at the University of Nottingham; it applies equally across the UK, China and Malaysia campuses. The regulatory force associated with these regulations, policies and procedures mean that Schools and students are required to comply. In particular, where the word "should" is used, this means that they must do those things.
