UWS prides itself as being inspirational, innovative, international and inclusive. It is our policy to celebrate and value the diversity of our student and staff populations. We are committed to providing education and employment opportunities to enable people of all backgrounds to fulfil their potential. We strive to be an environment that is free from any forms of discrimination, harassment or prejudicial behaviour.
The University of the West of Scotland is committed to equal opportunities within the University. We strive to ensure that no student or prospective student should experience discrimination or receive less favourable treatment and, specifically, on the following grounds:
- sexual orientation
- marital status
- ethnic origin
- any other distinction
University staff must follow these guidelines to prevent discrimination in the admission, teaching, assessment or supervision of students.
Any student who believes they have been the subject of discrimination or harassment should refer to the Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Policy and the Complaints Procedure for advice.
