Disciplinary measures

Managing disciplinary proceedings is regulated in Ch. 10 of the Higher Education Ordinance. The disciplinary actions available to a university include warnings and suspension. Anyone who has grounds to suspect that cheating has taken place must make a report.

These actions may be taken when a student:


  • uses prohibited aids or other methods to attempt to deceive during examinations or other forms of assessment of study performance

  • disrupts or obstructs teaching, tests or other activities within the framework of courses and study programmes at the higher education institution

  • disrupts activities in the library of the higher education institution or other separate establishments at the institution, or

  • subjects another student or member of the staff of the higher education institution to harassment or sexual harassment of the kind laid down in Section 4 of Chapter 1 of the Discrimination Act (2008:567).

The Disciplinary Board

Each institution of higher education is to have a Disciplinary board, the task of which is to manage disciplinary cases.

  • The Disciplinary Board at LiU is chaired by the vice-chancellor, and has a legal expert, teacher representative and two student representatives as other members. The dates of meetings are scheduled in advance for one term.
  • All meetings are held during term time. The case is discussed at the meeting that lies closest in time. It is an aim that the case be taken up within one month, and that a case need never wait longer than two months.
