Manual of Academic Regulations and Procedures (MARP)


MARP contains the University’s policies, regulations, and procedures which govern its academic provision. It is divided up into different sections (or chapters), each of which deals with a separate aspect of the regulatory and quality management framework. Please use the links below to navigate to the relevant information. The Introductory section provides a short overview of the Manual.

Changes are made to MARP on an annual basis. A table of changes detailing recent updates is provided for the latest academic year. Requests for information on changes processed for previous versions of MARP should be directed to marp-enquiries@lancaster.ac.uk

For in-year changes introduced in the 2023-24 Academic Year to a limited number of chapters, please consult the 2023-2024 In-Year Changes Table.

If you require access to an earlier edition of MARP, or have any enquiries or comments about MARP, please contact AQSC via the MARP Enquiries inbox: marp-enquiries@lancaster.ac.uk. AQSC welcomes views from both staff and students on ways in which information published on its web pages can be improved.

Information on grade translations for Study Abroad programmes can be obtained from the Global Experiences Office.
