Notes of Guidance
Section 1 – Personal Details
Correspondence Address – This should be an address where you may be contacted throughout the period leading up to the start of the course. Please inform the University immediately if this changes.
Section 8 – Criminal convictions
Your application cannot be processed if you do not complete this section. If you enter “yes” in the box you may be asked to send in further information.
To help the University reduce the risk of harm or injury to its students caused by the criminal behaviour of other students, we must know about any relevant criminal convictions that an applicant has.
Relevant criminal convictions are only those convictions 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 are not considered to be relevant and you should not reveal them.
The information provided will be used by the University for the administration of your application, academic record and student and welfare services. It will also be used for research and the compilation of statistics. The University may also supply this information to outside organisations including the Police, the Ministry of Interior, Local Authorities, the Ministry of Labour and its departments, Examination Boards or Awarding Bodies to prevent or detect fraud.
