Equality policies and reports

We wish to create an academic community that reflects the diversity in society; offers equal opportunity to the brightest minds; invites constructive challenge; allows freedom of speech; and addresses issues that might inhibit College members’ ability to reach their full potential. 

Equal Opportunities Policy Statement

The College welcomes diversity amongst its students, staff and visitors, recognising the particular contributions to the achievement of the College's mission that can be made by individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. All members of the College community will be respected and will receive equal treatment regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief (including lack of belief), sex or sexual orientation (“Protected Characteristics”).

  • In relation to staff, the policy and practice of the College require that all the staff are afforded equal opportunities within employment and that entry into employment with the College and the progression within employment will be determined only by personal merit and the application of criteria which are related to the duties of each particular post and the relevant salary structure. In all cases, ability to perform the job is the primary consideration. Subject to statutory provisions, no applicant or member of staff will be treated less favourably than another because of his or her sex, marital status, sexual orientation, racial group, disability, age, religion or belief.
  • In relation to students, the College aims to provide education of excellent quality at undergraduate and postgraduate level for all students, whatever their background. In pursuit of this aim, the College is committed to using its best endeavours to ensure that all of its activities are governed by principles of equality of opportunity, and that all students are helped to achieve their full academic potential. This statement applies to recruitment and admissions, to the curriculum, teaching and assessment, to welfare and support services, and to staff development and training.
