Congratulations and welcome!
This Higher Education Student Guide is full of useful information to help you prepare for your degree studies at University College Isle of Man (UCM).
There are almost 500 higher education students at UCM studying different subjects and most of the advice and information in this handbook has been provided by previous students. You will also receive a Programme Handbook with information specific to your course.
Information that you will find in this guide:
- About university life
- Manx Students Union
- Higher Education/University of Chester Term Dates 2020/2021
- Advice from former UCM students
- Student voice
- Facilities & resources
- Study Agreement, policies and procedures
- Support from the University of Chester
- Specialist support
- Preparing for employment
- Open Athens
- Useful links
As a student of both UCM and University of Chester (our academic partner) you have the support of both institutions. You will receive an email from the University of Chester asking you to enrol online with them. Do this as soon as possible so you can access a lot of information referred to in this guide.
As a degree student you need to be aware of the Academic Regulations of our partner, the University of Chester, that you will be subject to. All universities have these regulations and they are there to ensure that all students are treated consistently and equitably - you’ll learn more about these in this guide and in your Programme Handbook.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
The UCM Team
