A student accused of rape has been banned from attending classes for a year while he awaits trail.
Liam Allen, 21, was immediately banned from the university campus after an allegation of rape was made against him in October last year.
He has been told the decision made by the University of Sussex will stay in place until he has been tried at Lewes Crown Court.
The second year computer science student has not been allowed to attend classes since the allegation was made and he was charged by police last month.
Brighton Magistrates’ Court was told he has to have Skype mentoring lessons and that the ban has had a serious impact on his studies.
Police bail conditions imposed the same ban as restrictions on attendance prescribed by the university.
His solicitor Cathy Walker told the court: ‘This has taken a year to be in court and there have been no breaches.
