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.
