In accordance with General Medical Council guidelines, we also require an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check on entry to our Medicine programmes course for any Home (UK) student, or any student who has lived in the UK.
If you receive an offer to study with us, you will receive details of the process for completing your enhanced DBS check. We will request you do this check on registration to the programme, and potentially at subsequent intervals as requested by us, our partner NHS and other health care provider organisations.
We receive the result of your check electronically, and you will be sent the certificate.
If you are an international student, or you have been living outside of the UK, you will be required to provide an appropriately authenticated Certificate of Good Standing. The application process for criminal records checks or ‘Letter of Good Conduct’ varies from country to country, please see the guidance from Gov.uk about criminal records checks.
Failure to have a DBS certificate or similar criminal background check processed within ten weeks of your first registration as a student of the University of Hull or the University of York may result in termination of your registration on the Medicine programme.
Failure to make a relevant declaration may result in termination of your registration on the Medicine programme. If failure to declare is identified only after registration for the MB BS programme, the procedures followed will be those outlined in our Code of Practice on Fitness to Practise Medicine (PDF).
Hull York Medical School reserves the right to require further or additional criminal background checks as are deemed necessary for participation on the course. Failure to have any such check processed within twelve weeks of request may result in termination of your registration on the Medicine programme.
