Information specific to students
This policy is applicable to all members of the University, including students.
Although the majority of students will not encounter children whilst in a position of responsibility, some will come into contact with children as part of their course (for example, Education or Medicine) or when acting as volunteers or staff (for example during a summer school placement or at an open day). Heads of Department or programme / placement coordinators will tell students whether or not a DBS check is required.
If you find yourself working with children in a position of trust, you should familiarise yourself with the contents of these webpages. Consult the general guidance pages.
