In order for prospective students to make an informed choice, it is necessary to provide them with accurate and unambiguous information regarding the university and programmes. UCL has a legal obligation to provide this information at the earliest possibility.
Furthermore, consumer protection law requires that changes to some aspects of programmes, particularly changes to compulsory modules, will result in the need to inform applicants and consult with offer holders and current students. Compliance with consumer protection law is externally monitored by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and Office for Students (OfS).
The following pages have been developed to offer UCL staff with guidance and support so that all prospective and current student communications meet our consumer protection obligations.
