PVG Scheme

The School requires all students on the BSc (Hons) Medicine, MBChB (ScotGEM) and MSc Health Psychology programmes to join the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme, operated by Disclosure Scotland.

Students are advised of this policy in the summer of the year that they start.  The PVG application guidance document advises students on what information they must research and bring with them for Orientation week.  The guidance links to Disclosure Scotland’s supporting notes and a blank example form. Students should print the blank example form and complete it before leaving home in order that they have all the detail they need to complete an original, bar-coded form on arrival.

For staff.  The policy on students leaving the PVG scheme should be followed.
