Fitness to Study

The University recognises the need to respond appropriately to situations where visible signs of illness, mental health difficulties, psychological, personality or emotional state may have a profoundly disruptive impact on the functioning of individual students and on the wellbeing of others around them. This may also include signs of radicalisation. The Fitness to Study regulations outline the procedures and support available to both staff and students when a student becomes unwell and/or presents a risk to self and/or others.

Previous years’ regulations are available on request from the Student Casework Unit. Please email: studentcasework@southwales.ac.uk.
