Students often transfer between courses or progress onto a higher course level. You should not discriminate in the practical arrangements necessary to facilitate the progression or transfer nor in relation to the new course. In relation to all students, you should ensure that the requirements for progression or transfer are a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim to avoid claims of indirect discrimination or discrimination arising from a disability. In relation to disabled students, you may need to consider whether reasonable adjustments are necessary to the process by which competence is assessed and also what reasonable adjustments should be put in place to the facilitate their progression or transfer.
