Disclosure & Barring Service Enhanced Check
As you will be working with the public you will be required to complete an online enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check prior to the start of the academic term and this must be renewed as required throughout the duration of the course. An enhanced DBS check covers all previous convictions, including spent ones.
The cost of the DBS check is £44, which you will pay via the University online payment system.
Aston can check a pre-existing Enhanced DBS certificate for the Adult and Child Workforce if you have signed up to the DBS update service. We will require your permission in writing by email to access this information through the Update Service.
You can find out further information about the DBS check including guidance on the application process from their customer service department on 0300 0200 190, or on their website.
Occupational Health Check
You will be required to undertake a confidential online Health Check prior to the start of the academic term and further occasional health assessments may also be required. Once completed, the Audiology Department receives a report detailing whether or not there are any health concerns that need to be addressed before starting the course.
The cost of the initial Health Check is covered by the University.
