Disciplinary and Fitness to Study Procedures

A member of staff who has reason to believe that a student is not behaving responsibly will first discuss the matter with the student concerned. If this does not produce a satisfactory solution then the student's personal tutor will be approached, then the Head of Department or delegated person who may instigate ‘Fitness to Study’ procedures, or refer the student to the Dean of Taught Faculty.

In all but the most severe cases of unsatisfactory behaviour, you will be warned, in accordance with University procedures and given chances to improve your behaviour. You will normally receive an informal warning, then a College level written warning. If you fail to resolve the issues as set out in that warning, the College will report the student to the Dean of Taught Faculty and recommend appropriate action. Ultimately, failure to respond to measures put in place may lead to you being withdrawn from the University.
