Students kicked out for cheating & violence
Manchester Evening News Report:
At least 25 students have been kicked out of university in Manchester and Salford for cheating, violence and general bad behaviour.
Scores more have been suspended and hundreds of others given warnings after being found guilty of misconduct - academic and non-academic.
Manchester Metropolitan University handed out £15,000-worth of fines to 1,600 students found guilty of ‘non-academic misconduct.’
The majority of Manchester University students reprimanded were international students. Four people were kicked out of Salford University for criminal offences.
Manchester council bosses have committed cash from their limited budget this year to boost out-of-hours licensing provision to deal with misbehaving and partying students in areas like Fallowfield.
A university spokesman said: “Only a small minority of students commit any misconduct and we have policies in place to deal with any incidents that arise and to act as a deterrent.
“All students are given information on academic good conduct when they enrol and during exam periods. Support is provided throughout their study to remind them of policies and procedures.”
