Disclosing a Criminal Conviction

Having a criminal conviction will not normally prevent an individual from studying at Loughborough.

However, as part of our duty of care to the University community, we ask prospective students to disclose information about certain criminal convictions. This is to enable the University to assess and appropriately manage the risk linked to admission. Further information if you are an applicant is available here.

If you are a current student, you may be considered for disciplinary action under Ordinance XVII if you:

    1. Are convicted of a criminal offence, however, wheresoever and whensoever arising.
    2. Fail to inform the University immediately on being arrested, released without charge, released under investigation, released on police bail, cautioned for, or convicted of any criminal offence (excluding motoring offences for which a fine and/or up to three penalty points are imposed).

What support can the University offer?

Support will always be available to you:

  • If you feel you need support because the matter is affecting your health, including your mental health, you can access support from Student Wellbeing. You can do so via our Online Referral form.
  • If you have a disability, you should contact Student Inclusivity for further advice and support. You can do so by emailing studentinclusion@lboro.ac.uk or phoning +44 (0)1509 222770
