Equality, diversity and inclusion
We prioritise creating an inclusive culture that promotes equality and diversity in all aspects of our practices and activities. We acknowledge that diversity and difference are fundamental to the success and growth of our university. We recognise that in higher education, there are underrepresented groups in the academic community. Therefore, we actively encourage applications from individuals who identify as part of an underrepresented group, including, but not limited to, women, ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and individuals from low-income backgrounds. We value and appreciate the diverse perspectives and experiences that these individuals bring to the academic community and are committed to promoting a welcoming and inclusive environment for all.
