Fitness to Practise

University Fitness to Practise Policy – the University operates a number of professional programmes where students must demonstrate skills and standards of professional behaviour as well as academic ability, and issues from time to time arise over whether a students behaviour or health gives cause for concern about their fitness or suitability to practice in the professional area concerned.

The University also operates programmes where students engage with placement activity, for which similar concerns may arise about a student's fitness or suitability to participate in that activity. In either case, these concerns might not be of a kind which would prevent a student from continuing studies on campus, but the University has a responsibility to those members of the public who come into contact with students on placement, to its partners in placement and professional practice, and to professional, statutory and regulatory bodies to ensure that where they arise in a professional or placement context, such concerns are dealt with.
