A risk assessment will be carried out, and, if appropriate and necessary to protect members of the University in general, or to protect a particular member or members of the University, or to prevent a reoccurrence of any (alleged) misconduct, a precautionary suspension or exclusion from the University may be imposed on you by a Pro-Vice Chancellor, pending the outcome of a disciplinary hearing, police investigation or criminal or civil proceedings. You will be notified in writing of the terms of the precautionary suspension or exclusion, and written reasons for the decision will made.
In certain circumstances, it may be deemed necessary for an Emergency Precautionary Suspension or Exclusion to be imposed by the Director of Academic and Student Affairs (or nominee), for a maximum of five working days. The decision of the Director of Academic and Student Affairs (or nominee) will be reviewed by a Pro-Vice Chancellor, who may at that stage impose a precautionary suspension or exclusion, as above.
If you are subject to a precautionary suspension or exclusion, you will be able to access the student support services e.g. Student Wellbeing, Advice SU.
