is relevant to both staff and students. It was established in 1995 and aims to act as a central source of information for policies and procedures which support the University in its aim to assure the quality of its learning, teaching and supervision. Students may expect advice from tutors on the use and interpretation of the Quality Manual if they need it.  There are sections of the Quality Manual that have diversity elements within them.
