The University requirement is that all individuals who will be working unsupervised with children or vulnerable adults gain an enhanced disclosure certificate from the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) before starting their programme.
If you are required to complete a DBS check this will be noted as a condition of offer on your UCAS Track; your offer letter and also as part of your Programme Essentials.
What if I already have a DBS?
You will still need to apply for a new DBS.
We can only accept Enhanced DBS certificates from other organisations where they are dated after 17 June 2013 AND have been registered with the DBS Update Service. This service costs £13 for the year and MAY enable a certificate to be used by other organisations dependent upon whether any additional information has occurred since the DBS certificate was issued.
