Health and conduct
Keele University School of Psychology seeks to ensure the students in all its programmes are aware of the various Codes of Ethics and Conduct of the relevant professional associations.
- Health and Care Professions Council Guidance on Conduct and Ethics for Students (pdf)
- British Psychological Society Code of Ethics and Conduct (pdf)
- British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework for Good Practice (pdf)
Students are expected to abide by these codes in the conduct of their research and professional practice.
Health and Conduct Committee
Keele University School of Psychology operates a Health and Conduct Committee (pdf). The purpose of the committee is to consider concerns in relation to any student’s fitness to practise on the grounds of health or conduct. This committee operates under the university regulations about Fitness to Practice.
The School Committee can issue a warning and recommendations to the student or refer the student to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Fitness to Practice Committee.
