HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL

1 Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 7 May.

Decree (1): Deprivation of the Degree of Master of Philosophy

Explanatory note

No notice of opposition having been given, Mr Vice-Chancellor will declare carried at the meeting of Congregation on 27 April the general resolution depriving a member of the University of the Degree of Master of Philosophy on the ground of the use of unfair means in an examination for that degree (see `University Agenda' below). The resolution instructed Council, in accordance with Ch. I, Sect. I, § 4 (Statutes, 1997. p. 186), to determine by decree the procedure for de-gradation to be followed in this case. As in the two previous cases of a similar kind, Council considers that the appropriate procedure would be simply for a notice, consisting of the following decree, to be published in the Gazette, with a copy being posted in the Examination Schools. The decree provides accordingly.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In accordance with the General Resolution approved by Congregation on 27 April 1999, the member of the University found by the Proctors to have used unfair means in an examination for the Degree of Master of Philosophy is deprived of that degree.

2 The procedure for de-gradation shall be for a notice to be published in the University Gazette, which shall consist of this decree, and for a copy of this decree to be posted in the Examination Schools.
