I wish to bring to this forum a very burning issue and seeking for advise from the esteemed users and members of this forum.
Last year October I was convicted for 2 counts of drink driving (Failure to produce specimen for analysis and driving while unfit due to alcohol consumption) and was issued a 24 months driving ban, reduced to 18 months after completing 3 days drink awareness course; Which I have now completed. My road ride test was 56 microgrammes per millilitres of breath.
I applied in November last year to study Mental Health Nursing in one of the Universities in the UK. I was subsequently invited for interview, where I declared the conviction. The university recently contacted me to provide more details of the incident and DBS check, which I did. Yesterday I received a letter from the university DBS panel informing me that due to the nature of the offence, they will not approve my application for admission. However, I was given the right to appeal against this decision within 20 days.
I want to appeal against this decision as I really wish to study mental health nursing and qualify as a registered nurse.
Could members of this esteemed forum please suggest some useful and relevant points I could present as a strong grounds of appeal against the university's decision.
Thanks for anticipating contributions.
