F. Religious Dress

  1. It is recognised that some religions determine a certain mode of dress.
  2. No agreed rules exist regarding attire during study/research unless it is a requirement of the place of study/clinical attachment etc. [e.g. wearing safety clothing, dress appropriate to professional requirements].
  3. Priority must be given to health and safety requirements.
  4. Students whose attire conceals their identity must be prepared to confirm visual identity in an appropriate manner ­ e.g. at interview and prior to examinations.
  5. Where University activities involve dealing with members of the public (such as patients while on clinical placements) it may not be considered in their best interests for students to conceal their face.
