  • abuses alcohol or narcotics, or
  • is convicted of a serious criminal offence.

It shall be a further requirement for expulsion that there, as a consequence of circumstances set out in 1-3 above, is deemed to be a considerable risk that the student will injure another person or damage valuable property while pursuing the programme.
