Library copies of dictionaries can not be approved for use in exams.

University examination regulations permit the use of translation dictionaries in examinations if your first language is not English. SSID have produced more information about approved and prohibited dictionaries.

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 has to be 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.
