Equality & diversity

"Our aim is a motivated and diverse University Community, where staff and students demand the highest standards from each other and maximise the benefits of difference."

This is the key aim of our approach to promoting equality and diversity at the University. To support the achievement of this aim, a range of development activity is available to help us learn more about equality and diversity, as well as the expectations and responsibilities we share to maintain an inclusive culture.

You can also find out more about the wide variety of equality and diversity actions carried out across the University on the Equality & Diversity webpages,

Women only courses

We have some courses specifically for women, as we know that there are some subjects best suited to being delivered in a women-only setting.
These are instructor-led and include:

  • Dealing with difficult situations - This aims to empower individuals to operate in the face of challenging, unexpected or negative situations, by enabling them to skillfully manage themselves and the environment and increasing the available options
  • Get Noticed - This is designed to help women increase their credibility, be taken more seriously, project self-confidence, present their most powerful personal and professional self and receive the recognition they deserve
  • Networking for women - This is a practical and interactive session in which participants will learn how to approach formal and informal networking in a way in which they feel comfortable, capable and in control.
