Dress Code

The personal appearance and attire of students studying to become health care professionals can impact on the safety provided to patients/clients as well as the public perception of the quality of care provided and professionalism at large. Therefore all students working with patients/clients and/or patients’/clients’ families or/and in public areas are expected to dress in a professional manner. This policy provides direction as well as guidance about the standards of dress code required for staff and students of the Faculty of Health Sciences. It is primarily the responsibility of all students to comply with this policy and procedure and the responsibility of Heads of Department, Academic Members of Staff and Clinical Educators to enforce adherence to this policy.
