Almost 2,000 university students were reprimanded for bad behaviour including drug abuse, drink-driving, harassment and vandalism in just one year, new figures show.
Others were disciplined for posting defamatory statements on public websites, using university computers to access "inappropriate" material and plagiarism.
The institution with the highest exclusion rate was London's South Bank University
The figures - unearthed in a Freedom of Information Act survey - show 1,836 students were given formal warnings for unacceptable behaviour at 70 universities across the country while 56 were expelled.;jsessionid=CEBYTDDNOH2GDQFIQMFSFGGAVCBQ0IV0?xml=/news/2007/12/29/nuni129.xml
