Bangor University Policies

Finding a Bangor University Policy, Procedure or Guidance Note

The aim of this site is to provide a repository for University policies. A University policy is defined as one with broad application throughout the University, that helps ensure coordinated compliance with applicable laws and regulations; promotes operational efficiencies; enhances the University’s mission; and reduces institutional risk. This site includes Policies, Procedures, and other associated documentation approved by Council or by delegated authorities, such as Guidelines, Regulations, Codes of Practice, Frameworks, Standards, and Schemes.  Many important College, School, Department or Central Service policies serve similar purposes but are unit-specific and are not included on this site.

The University’s Colleges, Schools, Departments, or Central Services should link to this site rather than create their own pages with University policies. This will help ensure that everyone in the University is referencing the most current versions of policies.

This online centralised repository for institutional policies, procedures, and associated metadata:

  • facilitates easy access to key documents for staff and students;
  • ensures version control; and facilitates monitoring and review of key documents;
  • is a tool for quality assurance – institutional approval and legislative compliance;
  • assists with internal and external auditing requirements e.g. the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW);
  • and is a key benefit for Freedom of Information compliance.

Policy Development Framework

This Policy Development Framework sets clear expectations in relation to policy-writing at Bangor University, and creates a common approach to the development, implementation, and management of all Bangor University policies.  Policy owners and writers are encouraged to use the Framework, and the template included, both for existing and new policies. Support can be obtained from Jenny Amphaeris in the Governance and Compliance Office.
