Legislation

Under current legislation the University has a duty to eliminate unlawful discrimination and positively promote equality of opportunity and good race relations between people of all racial groups.

The University's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy 2013 and accompanying objectives sets out how we are going to continue to fulfil our duties under the equality legislation including our duties around race equality. 

We monitor ethnicity and report annually on progress in our Diversity Annual Report.

Our campuses are alive with different cultures and languages!  We have students from many different countries studying with us in the UK and many more studying at our centres aboard.

We celebrate Black History Month in October each year and are currently planning next year's activities. So if you have any ideas or want to take part - let us know!
