We take a proactive role to ensure people are treated fairly regardless of age, disability, race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual orientation.

The University, Faculty of Science and Schools are committed to the principles of the Athena Swan Charter. Athena Swan is dedicated to advancing gender equality in higher education and research. The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee use a range of data and feedback from students and staff to continually improve. Our Faculty discussions play a strong role in influencing changes to central policies and strategy at the University.

Our Schools hold Bronze and Silver Athena Swan awards.
