Our commitment to Equality and Diversity

In the UK, the standards we are required to adhere to are embodied in the 2010 Equality Act. Equally importantly is how these standards are evidenced through the values and behaviours of the University and the individuals of which it is comprised.

The University for the Creative Arts (UCA) recognises that discrimination and victimisation is unacceptable and that it is in the interests of the University, its employees and students to be inclusive. It is the aim of the University to ensure that no student, employee or job applicant receives less favourable facilities or treatment (either directly or indirectly) in recruitment or employment on grounds of:-

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender / Gender Reassignment
  • Marriage / Civil Partnership
  • Pregnancy / Maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or Belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation

Equality and Diversity forms part of our induction procedures and we undertake training on equality issues. Our equality policies and procedures are regularly under review. The impact assessment process and regular monitoring of our staff and student monitoring data helps us to gauge the effectiveness of our policies.
