While in the programme, I will endeavour to conduct myself in accordance with a Christ-centred life; cultivating actions it commends such as love, compassion, truthfulness, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. I will likewise refrain from dishonesty, plagiarism, drunkenness, sexual immorality, theft, violence, disruptive behaviour, racism, sexual harassment and illicit or non-medical use of drugs, narcotics and other substances. I will also honour any additional standards required by my home institution.
