HA v University of Wolverhampton

University – Student. The defendant university had been entitled to require the claimant to disclose his spent convictions and to obtain an enhanced criminal record certificate in his application for a Master of Pharmacy course, and although the requirement interfered with his right to private life, it had been in accordance with law and necessary in a democratic society. However, the Administrative Court quashed the university's decision to exclude the claimant from the course, given a number of flaws in the university's reasons which meant that its determination could not stand.
