Always use 'course' or 'degree' to refer to our courses. Do not use 'programme'. The course title should precede the award type and not follow it. For example use 'Photography MA' not 'MA in Photography'.

Degree classifications should read as 'first class', '2:1', '2:2', '3rd', 'pass' and 'other'.



Use miles for distances. Write distances using numerals and round to 1 decimal place if needed. For example '1 mile', '0.6 mile', or '2.5 miles'.

Obtain the distance by finding the shortest walking distance provided by Google Maps. Do not offer travel times as an alternative to distances. For example do not write '15 minutes walking distance'.
