UC Policy Library
Welcome to the University of Canterbury Policy Library, a single point of access for all of the policies and procedures that have been developed and approved at an institutional level.
Protected Disclosures Act - Internal Procedures and Code of Conduct
University staff should draw their attention to the Protected Disclosures Act - Internal Procedures and Code of Conduct policy (PDF,329 KB), as it sets out the University's internal procedures on how staff are to report "serious wrong-doing" as defined by the Protected Disclosures Act 2000.
Policy Template Now Available
The policy template (docx) is now available in the "Templates, Examples and 'How to...' documents" menu.
The Use of Electronic Signatures on University DocumentsThe Fraud Response Policy (PDF,313KB) was updated in April 2017 to include guidelines for the use of electronic signatures on University documents. Staff and students should make themselves aware of these changes and refer to the policy in the first instance when using electronic signatures.
Parking and Traffic Statute 2017
The Parking and Traffic Statute 2003 was reviewed at the end of 2016. In addition to content changes, the location of this information has been transferred from the University Regulations website into the UC Policy Library.
The 2003 Statute is still available and is contained as an appendix to the revised 2017 Statute, available on the UC Policy Library.
Special Consideration Procedures and Guidelines
As of the commencement of the 2016 academic year, UC has moved from the longstanding aegrotat system to a new special consideration process. You can find out more about the new regulation here: General Course and Examination Regulation H: Special Consideration (University Regulations website)

- Aegrotat Consideration Procedures,
- Discontinuation and/or Backdating After Due Date Policy and Guidelines,
- Missed Examinations Policy and Procedures for Applications for Special Pass,
- Missing of Tests and Other Assessment Deadlines Policy, and
- Refunds After the Due Date Policy.
