Interventional action allows the College’s approach to matters relating to student conduct to be more adaptive.

Interventional action may be taken, where appropriate, if student behaviour is of concern and needs to be addressed early and swiftly.

Academic departments may take interventional action with students, and advice on interventional action can be sought from Legal and Governance or by emailing conduct (

Interventional action does not make any findings or decisions about whether the misconduct took place.

The College shall keep a record for the purpose of monitoring when interventional action has been taken. This may be taken into account should further reports of misconduct of a similar nature be received.

  • Student reminded of expected behaviours
  • Mediation, if appropriate and both parties are willing
  • A no-contact agreement between two or more parties
  • Support and advice around expected behaviours
