Code of Student Conduct

The Code of Student Conduct sets out expectations for student behaviour and the procedures the University uses to resolve matters when students' behaviour is unacceptable. Oversight of the University’s Code of Student Conduct is the responsibility of the Curriculum and Student Progression Committee (CSPC). CSPC makes recommendations to the University Senate, which has primary responsibility for student conduct.

Investigating student conduct

Student conduct cases are investigated by Conduct Investigators and then reported to either a Student Discipline Officer or the Student Discipline Committee for penalties, if penalties are to be applied.

Advice for students

We recommend that you seek advice from The Advice Place, which is run by Edinburgh University Students’ Association. The Academic Advisers at the Advice Place are professional staff who are experienced in the University’s student conduct process.
