Disciplinary outcomes: student non-academic misconduct

The University of Surrey is committed to tackling unacceptable conduct by students in a fair and transparent manner. We want all members of our community to feel confident in reporting any instances of misconduct and to trust that effective action will be taken.

The information below outlines the outcomes of all cases of major misconduct which have been considered by a Student Disciplinary Panel. This does not include cases which failed to progress to a Panel hearing (for example, due to a lack of evidence), cases of minor misconduct or academic misconduct.

Students who are on courses that lead to registration to a professional body are likely to have their cases considered via the Fitness to practise process.

It is important to note that every case is considered on its merits and will have unique aggravating and mitigating factors.
