please note that this information is aimed at providing general guidance for students, it should not be seen as authoritative statement of policy and procedures. please also refer to the Fitness to Practice Procedures for Student Conduct (GR4a) and Health and Disability (GR4b) here
students studying on professional courses (Nursing, Midwifery, Social Work and Pharmacy) have their fitness to practice to enter into the chosen profession monitored by the University during the duration of their course. at the end of period of study, the University signs the student off as fit to practice in the chosen profession.
during this investigation, you may be suspended from practice placement, any bank work for professional bodies outside of your course as well as teaching at the University.
