Statute approved: Notice

19 October 2009

The Registrary has received notice from the Clerk at the Privy Council Office that Her Majesty the Queen, at a Council held on 15 October 2009, was pleased to approve amendments of Statute B, III which were submitted under the Common Seal of the University in accordance with Grace 4 of 11 March 2009.

These amendments remove reference to specific University degree titles from the Statute and place these degree titles in a new Schedule L so that the University may establish new degrees by Grace. Schedule L includes the new degrees of Master of Mathematics and Master of Advanced Study which were approved by Graces 2 and 3 of 11 March 2009. The special regulations for the degrees and other consequential amendments to regulations will come into effect from 1 October 2010 (see the Joint Report of the Council and the General Board, dated 8 December and 12 November 2008, on the establishment of a degree of Master of Mathematics and a degree of Master of Advanced Study (Reporter, 2008–09, p. 338) and the Council’s Notice of 9 March 2009 (Reporter, 2008–09, p. 575).
