Placement Conduct

Whilst completing placement experience students are advocates of UCLan and the students chosen profession/career and therefore should strive to uphold the reputation of profession/career and UCLan at all times.

Students should display a personal commitment to the standards of practice and behaviour set out in relevant professional body documents (see links at the bottom of this page) and aim to be a model of integrity and leadership for others to aspire to. This should lead to trust and confidence in both individuals and the profession from patients, people receiving care, other healthcare professionals and the public.

Students are required to uphold the principles of their chosen profession/career in both professional and personal lives. Failure to do so may impact on fitness to practise and ability to complete a programme of study.
