Exclusion from assessment

There are some circumstances under which a student can be excluded from assessment. In each case, there is a policy to be followed.

Guidance on exclusion

In cases where a student habitually fails to attend teaching, and the unsatisfactory students procedure has been followed, sometimes it is appropriate to exclude the student from assessment. Find out more about the circumstances in which a student can be excluded from taught assessment and the procedure that should be followed.

Referred students

Students can be "referred" if they have seriously or repeatedly failed examinations. In some instances it is possible for a student to be excluded from the University without previous warning. The referred students procedure (DOCX) explains what to do when a school decides that it will no longer take responsibility for a student who is seriously or repeatedly failing exams and a student's rights on those circumstances.

Cheating and plagiarism

Cheating and plagiarism is taken very seriously. The cheating, plagiarism, fraudulent or fabricated coursework procedure includes the process to follow in this situation and the penalties the students might face.
