For this purpose Archimedes has developed some rules for student conduct and the following provides a substantive but not exhaustive list of activities which Archimedes regards as constituting misconduct. These are:Any breach of Archimedes Ordinances or Regulations or Codes of Practice, including the Regulations for the Conduct of Examinations;

- Any conduct which may be discreditable to Archimedes or may bring Archimedes into disrepute.
In particular, you should note that Archimedes’ disciplinary jurisdiction over students’ conduct is not limited to that exercised solely on Archimedes premises or solely within course time. This means, for example, that the Regulations for the Conduct of Examinations apply to those run at an Archimedes site, that your behaviour off site and during vacations, weekends, evenings on placements and field trips may be taken into consideration. It also means that your behaviour in a social setting (for example in Archimedes residences, or on social media) may have consequences for their academic progress on their programme of study whether or not it takes place during normal Archimedes opening hours.
