Exclusion Policy

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Cardiff University,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, the exclusion policy for the School of Archaeology is requested. This should include any behaviour that would lead to automatic exclusion, any two or more behaviours that would warrant exclusion, and the factors that would be taken into account in terms of allowing a student to return following a failure to hand in coursework, attend fieldwork trips and to pass exams.

Yours faithfully,

Ms. Smith

InfoRequest, Cardiff University

Dear Ms Smith

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request below
dated 14th May 2013 in which you requested information regarding the
University's Exclusion Policy.

Our responses to your questions are as follows:

Under the Freedom of Information Act, the exclusion policy for the School
of Archaeology is requested. This should include any behaviour that would
lead to automatic exclusion, any two or more behaviours that would warrant
exclusion, and the factors that would be taken into account in terms of
allowing a student to return following a failure to hand in coursework,
attend fieldwork trips and to pass exams.

There is no exclusion policy specific to the School of Archaeology.
Students may be excluded for breach of University Regulations (which are
available on the University website at:
 [1]http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/regis/sfs/stude...)
 in accordance with the procedures set out below:

Student Discipline Procedure:
 [2]http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/regis/sfs/stude...
Students Fitness to Practice Procedure:
 [3]http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/regis/sfs/stude...
[4]Student Attendance, Academic Progress Requirements and Absence
Procedure:
[5]http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/regis/sfs/stude...
In addition Post Graduate Research Students are subject to the Code of
Practice for research degrees:  
[6]http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/regis/sfs/rdqh/...
Financial Procedures Handbook (sections D23 and D24), available at:
 [7]http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/fince/servicess...

In addition a student may be required to withdraw for academic failure.  

I trust this information satisfies your enquiry.  The University has a
Freedom of Information Complaints Procedure should you feel dissatisfied
with this response or the way in which your request was handled.
Complaints must be made in writing within two months and must set out why
you believe the University has not met its obligations under the Freedom
of Information Act.  You may email your complaint to
[8][email address] where it will be forwarded to the Director of
Student Services and Governance who will be responsible for overseeing the
review.

If you are not happy with the outcome of such an internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at the following
address: Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
Cardiff University. If you require further assistance please feel free to
contact us.

Yours sincerely
