The University does not tolerate unacceptable behaviour against a student, University employee or others visiting, working or studying at the University. Canterbury Christ Church University has set out what they consider inappropriate in their Unacceptable Behaviour Policy (found within the Disciplinary Procedure).
As a student, you need to follow the Student Code of Conduct, which includes behaviour on or off University premises and the use of social media.
As a student you need to:
a. respect and observe our rules and regulations
b. respect the rights and privacy of others
c. behave in an orderly manner in your academic and recreational activities on and off campus, in University accommodation, and in your daily life
d. be a proud ambassador for the University and the Students’ Union and represent them in a manner that best promotes their respective reputations
e. take shared responsibility for your guests when on University premises
f. take appropriate action when you see others acting inappropriately, for example by bringing it to the attention of the University or Students’ Union rather than intervening yourself
g. follow the relevant standards when undertaking professional training and undertaking organised sporting activities.
The University may discipline a student for unacceptable behaviour as described above wherever and whenever it took place. This includes acting to protect the interests and reputation of the University and its members. The University may take action using The University disciplinary procedure which can be found here.
The procedure outlines the process for dealing with disciplinary. In the first instance you can seek independent impartial confidential advice from the Students’ Union Advice Centre (firstname.lastname@example.org) who can support in any disciplinary situation.
Please note that students on programmes leading to a professional qualification need to behave in a manner suitable for that profession. Where there is unprofessional behaviour, the Faculty may take action. The Faculty Medicine, Health and Social Care has a Fitness to Practise Procedure. The Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Education has a Professional Suitability Procedure.
