DISCIPLINARIES

At some point, you may find yourself on the receiving end of the University's Student Disciplinary Procedure (Available below).

If the University believes you have committed one of the offences listed in this procedure, then it may begin an investigation. Should you find yourself in this situation, bear in mind that you have the right to independent support and we can provide that for free!

You can read more from the University about disciplinaries here

OUR TIPS

You do not have the right to demand that another student or member of University staff is disciplined. It is at the University's discretion to invoke this procedure. This is much like calling the police - you don't have the right to force the police to arrest someone! 

If the situation involves a criminal offence, the principles outlined in the document below apply.
