Important information relating to your application or enrolment
Criminal Convictions Disclosure
Belfast Metropolitan College actively promotes equality of opportunity for all and welcomes enrolments from a wide range of students including those with criminal convictions. However, in order for the College to manage any risk that you may pose, you must tell us about any unspent criminal convictions. For certain courses, you must disclose all criminal convictions. To do this, please complete a Criminal Offence(s) Disclosure Form or an Enhanced Criminal Offence(s) Disclosure Form. Both are available on the website http://www.belfastmet.ac.uk/life-at-the-met/students-support or by contacting the Safeguarding Administrator Tel: 028 9026 5120. Follow the instructions contained on the form telling you how to complete and return the form(s) to us. Certain courses require us to consider spent as well as unspent criminal convictions therefore in certain circumstances you must also disclose spent convictions using the criminal convictions enhanced disclosure form.
By disclosing criminal convictions you will not be automatically excluded from the application/enrolment process. However, the College will analyse the risk that you may pose and determine whether or not we can manage it. This is a separate and confidential process to the admissions process in keeping with the Data Protection principles. You will be advised about the outcome of this process separately and as quickly as possible. You need not discuss this with the course team.
To find out more information about the release of this information and guidance on conviction disclosure please contact the NIACRO on 028 9032 0157.
Students who have a non-EU passport, or have lived outside the European Union for all or part of the last three years may be liable for international fees and must have a fees assessment completed with our International Office.
To arrange an assessment, tel: 028 9026 5192. Students who are assessed and deemed International must pay an international fee for any course they join at Belfast Met, including Essential Skills classes.
