Safety Net Policy
Cardiff University first announced a principle that no student should be disadvantaged in terms of their achievement as a result of the disruption in the 2019/20 academic year.
In order to apply this principle, the University created a Safety Net Policy to be administered by Examining Boards. This policy was updated for the 2021/21 academic year.

There have been no further updates to the Safety Net Policy. The latest Safety Net Policy strictly applies to:
- All taught students in 2020/21 with the exception of classification of degrees.
- "Classification of degrees" applies to those who started their final year in 2020/21 or a later academic year.
- "Classification of degrees" included in the 2019/20 safety net policy applies if you started your final year in 2019/20.
