Health Questionnaire and Character Check
Whilst studying on the MPharm course you will come into close contact with potentially vulnerable people or at least learn about their personal circumstances, so the University have to ensure that their students have a proven record of good conduct and character before undertaking these types of activities.
When you meet your offer, the School will send out a Health Questionnaire before you join us. You will need to complete and return the form in an envelope addressed to our Occupational Health Team. You do not need to do anything else regarding a health check before this time.
UK based applicants will be asked to complete and return an Enhanced CRB check form that we will also send to you before you join us. Once the CRB check has been done, we will add it to the costs already on your University account.
Non-UK based applicants will be required to provide us with a Certificate of Good Conduct and Character, which will need to be requested from a formal authority like the police, or the Foreign Affairs Department or equivalent. It should include any information on any criminal convictions that you have, or simply confirm that you don't have any.
Please note that during the MPharm course, the GPhC will also carry out their own health and good character checks and may not register a student if a check is failed, even if previous checks have been passed.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding either of the above, then please speak to Tracey York on +44 115 8468456 or e-mail email@example.com
