It is of course, absolutely right that students studying for professional qualifications in medicine, law, social work and so on are subject to extremely high standards of behaviour, as there is a duty to the general public to ensure that such students conduct themselves in a manner that is highly professional and appropriate to their chosen field at all times. Match Solicitors have a proven track record in helping students clear their name before Fitness to Practise panels and getting them back on track and able to pursue their chosen career.
Students studying law, medicine and social work can find themselves being asked to appear before a Fitness to Practise panel for a number of reasons. These reasons include everything from very commonplace misdemeanours such as a lack of regular attendance to much more serious situations such as when a student does something that results in a criminal conviction.
Students hoping to embark on a career in medicine, law, nursing, social care, dentistry and veterinary surgery face long, intensive and often stressful professional training programmes and throughout their training right up to professional registration, the university has a duty to protect the public by ensuring each student is fit to practise in the area that they have studied.
