Step 2: TUS Regulations and Academic Calendar

What follows is a list of general rules and regulations that you should familiarise yourself with while studying with TUS Midlands.

Academic Calendar

The Academic Calendar outlines all term dates and time. On commencement, each student should make themselves aware of term dates. Typically lectures do not take place during non-term time. Click below to access the TUS Midlands academic calendar for 2022/23.

Netiquette

Etiquette or Netiquette as it is sometimes called describes a set of rules on how we engage with each other when online and in particular while attending an online lecture with us at TUS Midlands. Please click below to access our general guidelines on class etiquette.

Standards Assessment and Awards

This sets out all policies, guidelines, and procedures in relation to a student’s attendance at TUS Midlands. It contains details on late submissions, deferrals, and withdrawals.

Consent to Record

The decision to record lectures/classes is made by the relevant lecturer at their own discretion. All lectures delivered in an online mode will be recorded. So all participants attending TUS Midlands blended or online programmes are duly advised of this.

Students are asked to take note of the following in relation to Distribution of Recordings.

Recordings of online content cannot be distributed to different class groups because they contain other participant’s personal data.

By default, recordings will be published to the appropriate module in which the live lecture forms part.

To assist students with course revision and examination preparation, lecture recordings should remain accessible on the VLE for the duration of the module.

Recordings of student group presentations for the purposes of assessment will be available to the Module Coordinator in which the assessment is taking place only and will be deleted after the assessment period has ended.

Student Code of Practice in relation to Recordings

(i) Lecture/class recordings may not be reproduced, transferred, exchanged, distributed, or displayed in any public or commercial manner. In this context, the following is strictly prohibited:

• the copying, by any means, of recorded lectures/classes.

• the passing of recorded lectures/classes to any third party.

• the posting/displaying of recorded lectures/classes on any public forum including the internet and all electronic fora.

(ii) Students are reminded that covert audio and/or visual recording of lectures/classes is strictly prohibited and will be treated as a serious disciplinary matter.

(iii) Students who are in breach of this Code of Practice may be subject to disciplinary measures under the AIT Student Code of Conduct and Discipline procedures.

(iv) Students are reminded of the importance of adhering to codes of practice/conduct in relation to dignity and respect while attending lectures/classes.

(V) Recordings of student class participation will not be used against students for disciplinary purposes.

Assignment / Coursework Submission Rules
