Disclosure and barring service
You can view our current Policy Procedure for Admission to Programmes Requiring DBS and from Candidates with Criminal Convictions on our Admissions Policies page.
Courses requiring a DBS check
If you are applying to do a course where a DBS is required - please check the individual entry requirements for your chosen course - you should select YES if you have ever had a conviction, even if it is spent.
Where indicated in the prospectus or throughout the website, specific programmes/courses may involve regular access to children and/or vulnerable adults, also known as regulated activity. Where this is the case, students will be legally required to undertake a DBS check. The University will send further instructions on undertaking a DBS check as part of the admissions process.
Criminal Convictions and Recruitment of Ex-Offenders
The University Consideration of Criminal Convictions Policy & Procedure outlines how applicants who declare a criminal conviction(s) are appropriately risk assessed to determine their suitability for admission to the University/placement. The University also has a policy statement on the enrolment of ex-offenders.
DBS ID checks
When you have applied for a DBS check, you will be required to verify your ID. Due to current coronavirus restrictions, ID checks are being undertaken via video call in association with our partners Atlantic Data. You will receive instruction on how to book your video call with Atlantic Data via email, as part of your application process. During this call you will be required to show ORIGINAL copies of the ID documents you selected when you completed your application. These must be originals - if you do not have the originals you will need to reschedule your appointment.
