Procedure on Fitness to Study

This Procedure is one of three that underpins the Policy on Supporting Health, Fitness and Return to Study. The University has a duty of care to its staff and students and must comply with health and safety legislation. If there are significant concerns about the health, wellbeing, behaviour and/or conduct of a student, or their impact on others, the University is obliged to take action. If these concerns have not been resolved by the Procedure on Support to Study, they may be considered under this Procedure.
