4.3 Fitness to study

The University expects its students to be able to live independently and in harmony with others, and not conduct themselves in a way which has an adverse impact on those around them. However, there may be occasions where a student’s “fitness to study” may be brought into question, due to concerns being raised about their ability to engage appropriately with their University experience (broadly defined) and progress through their degree programme. This may occur for many reasons, and in a wide range of circumstances; therefore, a formal procedure for reviewing such concerns has been developed to ensure all cases are considered within a supportive framework.

The fitness to study policy and procedures are managed by the Wellbeing service.
