Important Information on Ethics and Disclosure

As part of the ethical procedures of the School of Social & Political Science (SSPS), you may be required to undergo a criminal convictions check through Disclosure Scotland. This will be required of students who take courses, or propose to undertake projects/ dissertations/ placements, which involve particular types of contact with children, young people or 'adults at risk'. SSPS permission to undertake these activities will be dependent on the results of the check. Students are responsible for the payment of the Disclosure Scotland checks. Other checks may be required for international students. SSPS reserves the right to require further checks at regular intervals.
