HE providers seek to admit the widest range of students who may benefit from their courses, seeing value in a broad range of talents, background, and opportunities – and this will include students with criminal convictions. Staff also need to balance fairly their obligations towards their applicants, including those with criminal convictions, with their obligations to the entire student and staff community.
This good practice guide is intended to support staff involved with institutional policies and procedures covering applicants with criminal convictions, and for admissions staff considering those applicants. The guide provides overarching good practice considerations in terms of policy and compliance, and is then split into good practice considerations for the four phases of the applicant experience.
Our good practice was significantly updated and restructured in October 2016. The annexes contain important additional information, and we strongly recommend you read them in conjunction with the main document.
