Welcome to the student disclosure service Welcome to the student disclosure service

Students walk through doorThe Student Disclosure Service is a central service which processes Enhanced Disclosures with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) for students who require one as part of their course.

The DBS was formed following a merger between the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) which came into effect in December 2012. 

Students will be contacted by us when they are expected to complete the DBS application process as information is provided directly to us via Admissions or the Learning and Teaching Service (LTS). 

This website will provide details about the process including links to useful documents to enable you to complete your DBS Disclosure as delays could affect your ability to complete the clinical aspect of your course.

Please feel free to contact us should you have any queries.

Currently, the courses where an Enhanced DBS Disclosure is required are:

Adult Nursing Children's Nursing
Mental Health Nursing Learning Disabilities Nursing
Midwifery & Shortened Midwifery Course Operating Department Practice
Return to Practice Nursing Return to Practice Midwifery
Physiotherapy (BSc) and (MSc) Occupational Therapy (BSc) and (MSc)
