Equality and diversity

The University and the Graduate School are committed to supporting equality and diversity in all aspects of their activity. Everyone has the right to study and work in a supportive and tolerant environment free from discrimination and harassment, regardless of race, religion, disability, ethnicity, or sexual identity or orientation.

All staff operate under the University’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.

For more information on what constitutes bullying or harassment, please see the University’s advice and support web page. If you need to report or talk with someone about issues relating to equality and diversity, please get in touch with either the School's equality and diversity officer or the Head of School.

Report and support

If you or someone you know has experienced bullying, discrimination, abuse, assault or harassment of any sort, you can report such incidents anonymously using the University’s Report and Support tool, which is aligned to institutional policies. You can also choose to use this tool to report using your contact details so a member of staff can get in touch with you to help provide support. This tool can be used by students, members of staff, members of the public or visitors to the University.

Mediation service

The University provides its own mediation service for staff, students, and members of the public who are connected to the University who want to resolve a disagreement informally. Mediation is a confidential, impartial and voluntary process in which trained mediators help people in dispute work out an agreement.
