Suitability Assessment Committee

Students undertaking specific professional studies are subject to on-going suitability assessment throughout the course of their degree. These assessments are included in an overall evaluation of the student’s professional and personal suitability for work in education, health or social services.

​​​​A student who potentially constitutes a danger to the life, physical or mental health, rights or security of children, pupils or patients, clients or users, shall be assessed as unsuitable. For further information, please refer to the Regulations relating to studies and examinations at Nord University.​
