Welcome to the University of Wolverhampton's Policy Hub where you will find all University Policy documents.

The repository provides access to the University's documents, including polices, procedures and guidance notes. You can search or filter for a particular document using the options below. 

The University of Wolverhampton operates within a framework of regulations, policies, and procedures to meet statutory requirements for UK universities.

These ensure we follow best practice and meet our legal requirements in a range of key areas. Other documents also form important elements of our Governance regime and relate to many and varied aspects of our University business, including academic, research, employment, finance and student support and services.

The University Policy Framework, available below, ensures the University has consistent standards for the development, approval, publication, communication and review of its governance documentation. The framework defines the categories of the policy and outlines the hierarchy of such document.
