Academic documents

This section of the website provides access to key documents upon which the smooth running of Plymouth Marjon University's academic activities depends. It is divided into a number of sub-sections including the Student Regulations Framework: please click on the left-hand side of this web page for access. 

Plymouth Marjon University deems any additional information it intends to deliver to a student to have been received by that student if:

  • It is published on the University's website, Learningspace or any VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) whose existence has been notified to students.
  • It is sent by electronic mail to the student’s University e-mail account, provided that five working days (or fifteen working days during vacations) shall elapse before receipt can be presumed. The student is responsible for ensuring that any e-mails sent to his/her University e-mail address are redirected to any personal e-mail address. Instructions on how to do so are available at Induction and through the Computing Services helpdesk.
  • The Module Leader gives it to students in person at the first lecture or point of contact at the commencement of the delivery of the module (note that it is the responsibility of individual students who, for any reason, were not present when that information was provided, to take whatever steps are necessary to acquire the information);
  • It is delivered by hand to a student in person, or to the latest address notified to the University as his or her local or home address, and the person delivering it has certified a copy of the document to that effect: or
  • It is sent by first class mail, or Recorded or Special Delivery, to the latest address notified to the University as his or her local or home address provided that five working days (or fifteen working days during vacations) shall elapse before receipt can be presumed.

In view of the above, all students are expected to notify any changes of address to Registry Services in writing (e-mail is acceptable) immediately. Students should also make appropriate arrangements to collect any mail that has been sent to them by Recorded or Special Delivery.  

In addition, please note that the University's definition of 'working days' is in accordance with the standard Government definition. A working day, therefore, is any day that is not a Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday.
