All students give an undertaking at enrolment to abide by the rules and regulations of the University, including those relating to conduct and discipline. The student disciplinary regulations outline what the University considers to be unacceptable behaviour on the part of students, the processes which exist for dealing with it, and the penalties which misconduct can lead to, which can range from warnings through to expulsion from the University.

The University will not tolerate sexual, homophobic, racial, physical or other harassment, or behaviour which causes fear or distress to others; threatening, abusive, disorderly or unreasonable behaviour; behaviour which contravenes the University's principles of dignity and respect or is a form of harassment or bullying, or which creates a hostile environment for another, including via the use of social media.

Students who face allegations of misconduct may obtain advice and support from the Students' Union.

You can find a copy of the Disciplinary Regulations here.

If you feel that a student has behaved in a way which breaches these Regulations, and you wish to raise this, please seek advice from Academic Services who will direct you to the appropriate senior staff within Faculty or Service who can progress your case.
