Charter, Statutes and Ordinances

The University Charter defines the governance of the University: its objects, statutes, ordinances, regulations, officers and powers including those that allow us to award degrees. 

The Statutes and Ordinances provide detailed information about the running of the University in terms of its governance.

"The objects of the University shall be to advance education, learning and teaching."
