Student Code of Conduct
Student Disciplinary Regulations
The Student Code of Conduct sets out the University's expectations in relation to behaviour on site. All students must familiarise themselves with this code of conduct.
Any breach of the Student Code of Conduct may be treated as a disciplinary matter, under the University's Student Disciplinary Procedure.
Fitness to Study Procedure
Where a student’s behaviour is recognised as the result of issues relating to the student's health or well-being, the Fitness to Study Procedure (PDF) may be used as an alternative to disciplinary procedures.
Fitness for Registration and Practice Regulations
The University has a particular responsibility in respect of students who are following a programme of study leading to a professional qualification which is registrable with a professional, or statutory or regulatory body, and where such registration is a pre-requisite to practise that profession.
The Fitness for Registration and Practice Regulations may be used where:
(a) the student has been found guilty of academic misconduct under the University’s Academic Misconduct regulations or a disciplinary offence under the University’s Student Disciplinary regulations; or
(b) the student demonstrates behaviour and/or health issues which do not constitute misconduct under the terms of the University’s Academic Misconduct or Student Disciplinary regulations, but raise issues of their fitness for registration and practise; and,
(c) there is a legal obligation to inform the professional, statutory or regulatory body about the matters covered by (a) and (b), or in the judgment of the Vice-Chancellor it would be in the public interest to do so.
Please refer to the Fitness Registration and Practice Regulations (PDF) for full details.
