Report and support

The School is against any kind of discrimination and harassment on any basis, including but not limited to gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. For more information on what constitutes bullying or harassment, please see the University’s advice and support web page.

The Report and Support tool is available to report any concerns related to wellbeing, bullying, discrimination, abuse, assault or harassment. You can report anonymously or using your contact details. If you provide your contact details, a member of staff will contact you to provide support. This tool can be used by students, members of staff, members of the public or visitors to the University.

If you would like to talk with someone about issues relating to equality and diversity in the school, you can contact the School’s Director of equality and diversity at or the Head of School at

Mediation service

The Mediation Service is available to students, staff and members of the public who are experiencing disagreement or conflict and would prefer a less formal method of discussing University-related disagreements and grievances. The service is also available for groups or teams. 

The mediators are staff members from the University of St Andrews who have undertaken formal mediation training accredited by Scottish Mediation. Several postgraduate students have also qualified in mediation.

Mediators act impartially and separately from University Schools and services. They are only interested in helping those engaged in the service reach a mutually acceptable solution.

Mediation is a confidential, informal, voluntary and self-determined process, without prejudice. If you or someone you know is involved in a disagreement that is in its early stages or has come to a halt, email for an informal chat about how the mediators can help.
