Policies for students

Our students are frequently updated of any changes to our academic policies and procedures via our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). When required we will also publish here on our website. The policies relate to all students at AECC University College,

both in the UK and Overseas. The policies highlight expectations and show students the support available should they require it.  Once students commence their studies with us they will gain access to more regulations, policies, codes of practice and guidance.
