Fitness to Practice
A programme of study which requires a student to undertake practical training in a quasi-professional role in relation to patients, clients, service users or the general public or where the qualification provides a direct licence to practise will be governed by a requirement that the student demonstrates their fitness to practise. In addition to existing University procedures for academic progression and conduct, the University must ensure that the health status of students and their professional behaviour does not constitute a risk to service users, clients and their families, carers, the public, other students or the individuals themselves.
There are mechanisms in place to monitor any issues during your studies. Please ensure you are aware of the Fitness to Practise policy.
