Nearly 2,000 students at Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Birmingham City, Staffordshire, and Aston universities have faced disciplinary action since 2009.

The cases include cheating in exams, fraud, harassment, and assault. One student at Aston was disciplined for stealing a carton of milk from a milk float on campus and another for burning incense in his room.
