Criminal convictions
In order to protect our students and staff we are required to ask if you have any relevant unspent criminal convictions. A relevant conviction is for offences against the person, whether of a violent or sexual nature, and convictions for offences involving unlawfully supplying controlled drugs or substances where the conviction concerns commercial drug dealing or trafficking. Convictions that are spent (as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974) are not considered to be relevant. However, certain programmes (for example teaching, health or social-work related) are exempt from the Act and different rules apply with regard to criminal convictions and the University may ask you to agree to a criminal record check as a condition of an offer.
