The University of York and the Department of Psychology have a number of regulations and procedures that students need to follow. This wiki-based Handbook is intended to summarise the full range of these, or to point you to the places where authoritative statements can be found.

Other important sources of information are the individual course overviews (which describe the overall organisation of your course and the different modules it comprises) and the VLE which contains information about the specific modules you are taking and is updated by the staff teaching the course.

If you can't find some information that you think should be in the handbook, please contact Louise Ward.  Please also let us know if any of the information is unclear, contradictory, ungrammatical or just wrong!


If things go wrong?

We hope your time at University will be amongst the best experiences of your life. However, it is important that you know where to turn to, should you experience any difficulties.

We have a set of web pages dedicated to providing support for you if things go wrong. For further information, visit:
