Conduct - Guidance for Schools

This guidance should be read in conjunction with the Conduct Regulations. Where there is any doubt, the Regulations take precedence over this guidance.

Most allegations of student misconduct will be investigated by either Accommodation Services (misconduct in accommodation) or Community Engagement (off campus misconduct). However, Schools may be required to deal with allegations of student misconduct which arise within the School, on placement or on a fieldtrip or where the alleged misconduct involves written communications, including social media.

The Appeals and Complaints Team ( is happy to provide additional advice and guidance on a case-by-case basis.  

Allegations of misconduct by a student should be referred to the Head of School, who will be the Disciplinary Officer (see 2.1.6). The Head of School will appoint an Investigating Officer, normally within the School, to carry out an investigation.
