Short Courses and Summer Schools (SC) Students Welfare Policy- Policy Statement

The SC team will aim to deal with any student welfare issues as quickly as possible, whether directly or indirectly in order to minimise the risk/discomfort experienced by the student. Where the SC team is unable to be directly involved with the welfare issue, either due to not having the necessary expertise or it being an out of hours emergency, the SC team will ensure that students (and their host families if applicable) have access to the relevant contacts in the University or externally to help with the issue. In cases where the SC team does not have the expertise to deal with the welfare issue, they will support the student in a relevant and appropriate way to signpost them to a University of York team which does have the appropriate expertise.
