I have been asked for medical / DBS clearance as part of the conditions of my offer, what do I have to do?

Medical Clearance

Offers for Teaching, Nursing and a selection of Modular Undergraduate Degrees are offered on the requirement that potential trainees are able to meet the statutory requirements of the profession for physical and mental fitness.

You will be sent full details and a medical questionnaire within 3 months of the start of your programme. Our Occupational Health Adviser (OHA) will consider the information you provide and will confirm whether or not you meet the requirements. You may, exceptionally, be contacted for further details by the OHA.

DBS Enhanced Disclosures

You will be sent full details on how to apply for your DBS application along with your medical questionnaire. We will provide you with guidance notes indicating what information/proof of identity you need to provide. It is important that you provide the correct information to ensure your application is processed as quickly as possible. Failure to do this will lead to a delay in the receipt of your certificate.

Although you may already have a DBS Enhanced Disclosure Certificate, you will still need to go through this process again for Edge Hill. The guidance notes will explain this to you.

You can also find more information specifically regarding DBS checks on our website which outlines our policy on applicants with criminal convictions etc.
