Inappropriate behaviour and its consequences

The University has a duty of care to ensure a safe learning environment for all members of the University community, including the online learning environment such as discussion boards and forums. The University is obliged to take immediate action where a student’s behaviour is inappropriate or interferes with the freedom of another member of the University community in pursuing their studies, research, academic or professional duties, or University life.

Where a breach of the University’s policies and procedures also breaches the law, the University will report the criminal activity to the police.

Full details are included in the Code of Conduct for Students.
