To encourage and shape student success, NSCD has agreed the following summary of commitments which have been agreed in consultation with key staff and student representatives.
The Student Charter represents important information surrounding Student Academic Rights and Expectations of Behaviour. It is reviewed regularly and signed off by the Chief Executive and Executive Leadership team in consultation with the student body.
It also provides summary and links to key student facing policies and procedures. NSCD expects and requires students to conduct themselves in a manner that is reasonable and proper, both on-site and in the wider community. Nearly all NSCD students study on-site except when working with external organisations on placement as part of their programme of study. Professional conduct, self-respect and respect for others and school resources are essential to the function of our artistic and academic community. NSCD will take appropriate action where there has been a breach of its policies or regulations, in relation to student conduct. All students and staff are expected to follow the spirit of our student charter (subject to reasonable adjustments relating to individuals).
NSCD undertakes to provide students with the following information about their programme of study, its delivery and the future:
NSCD requires that students undertake to support our Learning Culture:
