Sometimes, a student may be faced with a disciplinary issue at university. For example, you may have behaved badly on a night out with your friends and done something that the university believes has brought it into disrepute.
It may be that you have had an altercation with a member of staff or breached the university or college’s procedures in submitting assignments on time. You may have failed to attend your lectures for good reason, but the university or college has decided to discipline you.
Most universities and colleges will have procedures to deal with discipline. It is very important with discipline issues that your rights are protected. You have the right to be treated fairly in law. This means that you must know the allegation against you, you must see the evidence that the decision maker is relying on, you must have a fair opportunity to put forward your defence and you must have an independent, impartial decision maker who is capable of making a just decision based on the evidence before him/her.
The consequences of a disciplinary allegation can lead to expulsion from the university or college. It is therefore imperative that you put your best case to the university. Match Solicitors can assist you with the entire process.
