I have been accused/convicted of a criminal offence. Do I need to notify the University?

In accordance with the University’s regulations you are required to inform the University if you are convicted of a criminal offence or if you receive a caution by the Police.  The University requires students to do this so that it can carry out a risk assessment and to take appropriate action.  It is particularly relevant for students on programmes which require professional placements.  Sometimes a criminal conviction could also result in the University taking disciplinary action.
