Code of Practice for Research Degrees
Cardiff University’s Code of Practice for Research Degrees is designed to provide clear and useful information for postgraduate research students and staff. It sets out the duties and responsibilities of the research student, their supervisors and the School. It also describes how Schools should manage and support their research students, and sets out the institutional framework within which these arrangements operate.
The Code references and complements relevant Senate Regulations of Cardiff University: together, their role is to maintain the quality and academic standards of the University’s research degree programmes in accordance with Chapter B11 of the Quality Assurance Agency’s UK Quality Code.
The latest version was reviewed and updated in 2013 and a searchable PDF can be downloaded below. The information within the Code can also be accessed via these webpages either using the Quick Links below or the contents menu on the left.
