University Fitness to Practise
Fitness to Practise
For some professional courses the University is required to comment upon a student's fitness to practise a certain range of skills and professional behaviour. This is entirely separate from any academic judgment issues we are required to make.
The University has a Fitness to Practise Policy that seeks to ensure consistency of decisions across the University, but in individual cases the assessment will be completed by a Faculty Panel that includes an external member of the relevant professional practice area.
Students who are assessed as not fit to practise in some capacity may be able to complete a non-professional academic programme at LJMU.
Under the Fitness to Practise procedures the University may temporarily suspend the studies and/or placement of the student.
