Policy and Procedure for Applicants with a Criminal Conviction

(招生政策第7节H段)

A. 介绍

Having a criminal conviction will not normally prevent an individual from studying at Loughborough. 然而, 这是2017威尼斯登陆网站照顾大学社会责任的一部分, we ask prospective students to disclose information about certain criminal convictions. This is to enable the University to assess and appropriately manage the risk linked to admission.

刑事定罪的考虑与评估申请人的课程/课程的学术适宜性是分开的.  Those applicants who receive an offer to study at the University, 将被要求提供与以下犯罪记录相关的信息(通过公司, 保险或临时航线).  This includes Clearing, Adjustment and Record of Prior Acceptance (RPA) for 本科 applicants.

在刑事定罪被披露后,大学可能会对作为注册学生的申请人施加某些限制或条件. If the University believes that risks cannot be appropriately managed, 它保留取消或撤回要约的权利, 拒绝承认或终止任何合同.   This reserved right is especially relevant in the case of sexual, 暴力犯罪, 与药物滥用有关的, 从事非法物品交易或不诚实行为或与不尊重他人受保护特性有关的行为.

B. 需要披露的刑事定罪

大学认为下列是严重罪行,因此要求申请人披露收到的资料:

  1. a criminal conviction leading to a custodial sentence (including suspended sentence) as set out below:
    • 如果你在法庭上被判有罪时未满18岁:
      • A custodial sentence of 0-6 months that ended within the last 18 months (including the licence period)
      • A custodial sentence of 6-30 months that ended within the last 2 years (including the licence period)
      • A custodial sentence of 30 months – 4 years that ended within the last 3.5年(包括牌照期)
      • 任何时候被判处4年以上的监禁
    • 如果你在法庭上被判有罪时已满18岁:
      • A custodial sentence of 0-6 months that ended within the last 2 years (including the licence period)
      • A custodial sentence of 6-30 months that ended within the last 4 years (including the licence period)
      • A custodial sentence of 30 months – 4 years that ended the last 7 years (including the licence period)
      • 任何时候被判处4年以上的监禁

Convictions outside these periods are considered 'spent' under English and Welsh jurisdiction: www.政府.英国/指导/ rehabilitation-periods.

  1. 根据《2017威尼斯登陆网站》发出警告/定罪,以及现行的通知规定(通常称为在“性侵犯者名册”中增加的规定).

在任何时候, an applicant indicates that they have a criminal conviction as outlined above, but refuses to provide sufficient information relating to it or to engage with the procedure, 大学保留根据《2017威尼斯登陆网站》和《2017威尼斯登陆网站》第五条规定的权力撤销学习地点offer的权利 www.lboro.ac.英国/管理/法律/

如果在招生办的过程中,披露刑事定罪的时机太晚,无法全面执行上述程序, then an adapted procedure may apply of which an applicant would be made fully aware. 然而, 如果这是不可能的,程序不能在相关课程/课程开始日期令人满意地完成,那么录取可能不得不推迟到以下的招生周期.

Responsibility to report criminal convictions outlined below rests with applicants to the University. 如果2017威尼斯登陆网站在课程/课程开始日期前30天没有收到申请人的来信,2017威尼斯登陆网站将假定他们没有相关的刑事定罪. The same applies if they receive a criminal conviction after the point at which they accept their offer. 未能报告相关定罪可能导致录取被撤销或对在校学生采取纪律处分. 请参见第1节.7和2.3的 大学的学习条款和条件.

C. 数据保护

The processing of information provided when declaring a criminal conviction, as well as all communication about the criminal conviction, will be dealt with in line with the Data Protection Act 2018 and the 大学的数据保护政策.

在实践中, 这意味着刑事定罪数据将只按照下列正式程序收集和处理. 2017威尼斯登陆网站将收集完成评估所需的最低限度信息,并与刑事定罪小组(CCP)会议记录(如果适用)一起由相关招生经理与学习申请分开进行.

这将构成唯一的官方记录,所有其他作为程序的一部分提供信息的人将被要求销毁这一记录,原因是保密. This will be passed to the Director of Student Services should the student register at the University.

D. Procedure for courses that do not require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check

The procedure below applies to applicants to Art and Design Foundation, 本科, 研究生教, 研究生研究项目, 以及访问和合作学生. (此程序不包括希望在拉夫堡学习教师教育的申请人,他们需要通过加强披露和禁止服务(DBS)检查,以验证他们是否适合与年轻人一起工作-见下文E部分).

  1. Applicants accepting an offer of a place to study at the University via a firm, 保险或临时航线, 将通过电子邮件发送,并被要求提供导致监禁(包括缓刑)的刑事定罪细节(如上所述).

    Further information will be requested by the relevant Admissions Manager regarding the offence. It may also be necessary to obtain information from a third party (e.g. 缓刑监督官).

  2. When all the necessary further information has been received, 相关的招生经理将把案件提交给学术注册主任,以决定是否需要采取进一步的行动.

    如果决定无需采取进一步行动, 申请人将通过电子邮件获知此事.

    如果决定采取进一步行动, details regarding the applicant’s criminal conviction will be referred to the 刑事定罪 Panel (CCP).

  3. The applicant will be advised that this Panel is to meet. 申请人所提供的资料及由申请人提名的任何第三者,会在会议前转交事务委员会委员(见下文6). 质量控制中心将评估申请人入学过程中涉及的以下风险,并确定适当的控制措施(如有):
    • 对已识别个体的身体风险
    • 心理/福利风险的确定个人
    • Risk to the status and reputation of the University and/or 学生’ Union
    • 危及大学的有效运作

  4. 中国共产党要么:
    1. 建议允许继续提供学习地点,没有对申请人施加任何条件或限制.
    2. 建议在提供学习地点的同时,允许对申请人增加条件或限制.
    3. 根据《2017威尼斯登陆网站》第五章的规定,向校长建议撤销提供的学习地点.lboro.ac.英国/管理/法律/.
    4. 在澄清所收到的任何信息之前推迟作出决定,或要求进一步了解有关罪行的细节. Once clarification/further information has been received the Panel will take one of the actions set out in i, ii, 或第三.

  5. The outcome of the CCP’s proceedings will be conveyed by email to the applicant by the relevant Admissions Manager.

    If the offer of a place to study is allowed to proceed without 任何 conditions or restrictions, no further action will take place until the applicant has formally registered at the University, whereby responsibility for support will pass to the Director of Student Services. 如认为任何其他大学教职员应在“有必要知道”的基础上,向其提供定罪详情, 申请人将被告知.

    If non-academic conditions have been attached to the offer, the applicant will be required to accept these in writing before the offer of a place of study is confirmed. 录取将被记录在单一的官方记录中,在申请人正式在大学注册之前,不会采取进一步的行动, whereby responsibility for support will pass to the Director of Student Services (see point above).

    If the applicant is dissatisfied with the decision made by the CCP/conditions imposed then they should refer to the 上诉及投诉程序. Given the likely sensitive data relating to the appeal or complaint, this should be sent by email to the relevant Admissions Manager rather than using the standard 申诉和投诉 form.

  6. 刑事定罪小组的组成:

    The CCP will be drawn from University staff and will comprise:
    • 教务主任(担任主席)
    • 相关招生经理(担任秘书)
    • the Director of Student Services (or chosen representative)
    • 保安经理(或选定的代表)
    • the Director of Campus Living (or chosen representative)
    • 负责申请人所选课程或研究的学院副院长(或指定代表)
    • such other member(s) whose expert advice is deemed desirable.

E. Procedure for courses that require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check:

申请人被要求声明他们是否有 任何 criminal convictions, including spent convictions via their UCAS application. 申请人在面试时被要求填写DBS申请表,如果申请人接受了录取通知,随后将进行DBS检查.
