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.

Guidance Notes for Students and Staff on the Fitness to Practise Procedures


Under the Fitness to Practise procedures the University may temporarily suspend the studies and/or placement of the student.
