Student Disciplinary Procedures
- It is essential for Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) to create and maintain an atmosphere which is conducive to the academic and social well-being of the University community and to discourage behaviour which will adversely affect this well-being.
- Complaints of misconduct should, wherever possible, be dealt with informally by consultation between the student(s) and the appropriate staff concerned. Informal counselling may form part of the procedure and, conducted at an early stage, may help prevent the escalation of a problem into a formal disciplinary matter.
- The formal procedures should only be invoked where informal action has failed or is considered inappropriate.
- These procedures are relevant to all students of JMU undertaking a programme of study operated by the University. This includes staff who are also students but only in their capacity as students.
