I’ve been invited to a Academic Misconduct Panel, what happens now?
If you have received an invite to a Academic Misconduct Panel by the Quality Manager you should have been given a date within 10 working days, along with notification of your right to be represented and accompanied, and right to call witnesses and provide documentary evidence.
You have the right to be represented by one member of the University (an employee, student or Student Union Officer) and you may additionally be accompanied at a Hearing by one friend or family member.
Only the designated representative will be permitted to speak on the student’s behalf.
If you are to be represented and/or accompanied at the Hearing, the name(s) of the person(s) must notify the Quality Manager at least 5 working days in advance of the Hearing.
You may present documentary material or witnesses evidence in your defense.
Any documentary material for consideration by the Panel, and/or the names of any additional witnesses and written copies of their evidence, must be received by the Quality Manager at least 5 working days in advance of the Hearing.
It is recommended you seek advice from the Students’ Union Advice and Representation Coordinator, Molly New at firstname.lastname@example.org
