Constitution charter

The constitutional framework within which Cardiff University operates is based upon its Charter, Statutes and Ordinances.

The Charter defines the objects, powers and officers of the University, and embodied within it are such fundamental principles as the University's power to teach, examine, carry out research and award degrees.

Details concerning the members of the University, officers, and rules concerning statutory bodies are laid down in the Statutes, while the Ordinances give practical details concerning the way in which the University is governed within the general framework of the Charter and Statutes, particularly the terms of reference of its committees.
