Library copies of dictionaries will not be approved.

University examination regulations permit the use of translation dictionaries in examinations if your first language is not English. Translation dictionaries must be from your native language to English, or from English to your native language.

Only simple, generic translation dictionaries will be approved. Subject-specific, technical dictionaries and encyclopedias will not be approved.

Approval for dictionaries is obtained from the Student Services Information Desk (SSiD) in the Students' Union Building. A sticker will be added to any dictionary that is permitted for use in examinations.

You must ensure that the approved dictionary does not contain any hand-written notes, book marks or additional pieces of paper. All approved dictionaries must be presented to an invigilator for checking before the start of every examination.  Do not use borrowed dictionaries in examinations as you will be held responsible if the material is confiscated under the regulations.
