Oxford University is considering plans to ban romantic and sexual relationships between teachers and students.
Academics found flouting the policy, which would apply to any staff directly teaching or supervising a student, could face sanctions.
These range from a formal warning to dismissal under new plans, which aim to tackle sexual harassment on campus.
The move to bring in a formal ban comes months after It Happens Here – an Oxford University Student Union group, which campaigns against sexual violence – launched a campaign calling for a ban on the 'inappropriate' relationships.
