Criminal records

We do not wish to prevent those with criminal records from benefitting from higher education. This has to be balanced with providing a safe environment in which to work and study.

The policy on applicants and students with criminal records (PDF), located on the Student Cases webpage, explains the process we will use in considering applications from those with criminal records and how applicants can appeal against the decision made. 

The obligations on applicants and students to declare criminal records are also described.
