How and where are details of the investigation recorded

All documentation relating to the academic misconduct investigation is saved in a secure area in Sharepoint, for each individual case. This includes a written record of the formal panel meeting. Access to this area is limited to the Dean of Students and the university Student Support Assistant, who acts as clerk to the panels.

Once a panel has been held, all panel members are required to securely destroy any documentation they have been provided with and sign an agreement beforehand assuring compliance.

All documentation will subsequently be archived in accordance with agreed university guidelines, in compliance with national GDPR legislation.
