Join experienced student ambassadors and Widening Participation placement students 2023/24 Isobel and Dani, for a walk through key areas to be aware of when working with young people, their families, and our peers.

Marginalised Groups

We have created guidelines for speaking to young people, to raise awareness of the need to consider marginalised groups in the language that we use.

It is important that we are inclusive of individual needs and concerns, so that every student feels welcome, and that their situations would not be a barrier in their sense of belonging at the university. The guidelines have been written in consultation with support staff and students with lived experience in these areas:

  • Young Carers
  • Refugees/Asylum Seekers
  • Care Backgrounds
  • Estranged Students
