The Business School Student Handbook can be found on the Business School Blackboard Learn site (Academic Programme Office – APO). The Student Handbook is a useful source of information for all aspects of your studies, including policy, procedures, plagiarism, house style for assignments, group work submissions and other important matters. The School assumes that you will familiarise yourself with this information, so you will need to look at these pages carefully at various times throughout your studies. The School also operates within the rules and regulations of the University more generally, and you should also look at what are known as ‘Senate Regulations’ under the University’s webpages at: http://www.brunel.ac.uk/about/administration/university-rules-and-regulations/senate-regulations.
These policies and procedures, and rules and regulations, are liable to change from one academic year to another. You should therefore ensure that you make yourself aware of these, as you cannot later claim a lack of knowledge on these matters.
