How will you use my emergency contact information?

All students are required to provide details of an emergency contact. It is a mandatory (or required) submission.

The University will only use this information in an emergency. For example: a serious injury or a serious mental health crisis, or a risk of suicide. Wherever possible, consent to connect with the named emergency contact would be discussed with a student before contact is made. It would only be in the most serious circumstances, for example, in an emergency where the student might be injured and unable to give permission, or otherwise unable to make an informed decision in their own best or “vital interests”, that we would connect with the emergency contact directly (and without the student’s prior permission to do so).

Our approach to connecting with an emergency contact is a judgement that is taken seriously - and only with good and urgent cause.
