Disciplinary offences

The University is a large and complex organisation and there have to be rules and regulations to ensure it runs smoothly. The University also expects students to remember that they have a responsibility to uphold the good name of the University both on and off campus. The University has a clear Code of Conduct which sets out the expected standards and a schedule of sanctions that can be applied for breaking the code. Penalties range for the minor (e.g. an informal warning) to the most severe (e.g. permanent exclusion from the University). If there is an allegation of a disciplinary offence (also known as non-academic misconduct) then:

  • Allegations will be fully investigated by an independent person
  • If there is a case to answer then an informal resolution may be possible
  • If an informal resolution is not possible then you may be called before a Student Disciplinary Panel which has the power to impose disciplinary sanctions
  • You will be entitled to be accompanied at any investigatory meeting or panels that you are required to attend
  • There will be an appeal process in the event of sanctions being imposed
