Fitness to Practise Policy
‘Fitness to practise’ means having the necessary skills, knowledge, health and character to undertake and complete, safely and effectively, a programme that includes elements of professional practice, experiential learning or clinical work. Not all programmes of study have a fitness to practise requirement.
UL’s Fitness to Practise policy, which can be accessed from the link immediately below, applies to students registered on UL undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that do have a fitness to practise requirement.
For those UL programmes that have a fitness to practise requirement, fitness to practise statements must be documented by the course board of each programme. Statements that have already been approved can be accessed below.
