The University has taken all reasonable steps to make sure that the information on this website about course content, structure, teaching facilities and staffing are accurate and up-to-date. Students are however warned that the demand for certain courses and the availability of staff and resources means that the University cannot guarantee that all courses featured in this website will necessarily be offered. Some courses may have to be withdrawn, or combined with others, or their content changed as resources dictate or permit.

Students and/or prospective students must therefore understand the needs or pressures for change and must also understand when the University expressly states that it shall not be held liable for any claim for damages (including economic damage) or costs(including legal costs) to any student who complains or takes legal action because the course s/he expected or wished to pursue has become unavailable or changed in content.

Having made this disclaimer, I hope you will find this website helpful and interesting. Should you not find what you are looking for, please let us know and we will try to help.

We warmly welcome you, if you are already here, and look forward to hearing from you if you have not yet decided.
