Student Policies and Regulations

Fitness to Practise

This is the procedure to be followed in regard to the professional programmes offered by The Open University.

In particular, programmes where the regulatory bodies involved require the University to say that the student is not only academically qualified to practise, but also suitable or fit to practise in that profession. It sets out the procedures to be followed to determine whether there is a cause for concern and if so, whether it is of such seriousness that the Fitness to Practise procedure should be invoked, or whether the concerns can be addressed by supporting and managing the student.
