Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) is part of Durham University and will be referred to as CEM throughout this website/documentation.


Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in our literature and on our website is correct at the time of publication. CEM will use reasonable endeavours to deliver products and other services in accordance with the descriptions provided.

CEM, however, reserves the right to make variations to product contents, fees, methods of delivery, to discontinue/merge or combine products, and to make variations to regulations, both before and after an institution’s registration, if such action is reasonably considered necessary by CEM.

Should industrial action or other circumstances beyond the reasonable control of CEM occur, and this interferes with CEM’s ability to deliver products or other services in accordance with the descriptions provided, CEM will use all reasonable endeavours to minimise disruption as far as it is practical to do so.

If, after an institution registers for a product and has been accepted, the product is substantially varied from that described in the literature for reasons other than circumstances beyond CEM’s reasonable control, CEM will use reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable replacement product. If the institution does not wish to accept the replacement product, the institution shall be entitled to withdraw from the product. In the event of such withdrawal a refund of registration fees shall be made in accordance with CEM's policy.

Throughout our publications, words importing the masculine gender include the feminine gender.
