We are proud to be a Disability Confident leader and value, promote and celebrate inclusion, challenging discrimination and putting equality, diversity and belonging at the heart of everything we do. 

We aim to be an inclusive university, where difference is celebrated, respected and encouraged. We truly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and backgrounds will lead to a better environment for our employees and students, so we encourage applications from all genders, backgrounds, and communities, particularly from under-represented groups such as Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and disabled people, and value the positive impact that will have on our teams. 

We are positive about employing disabled people and are committed to building disability confidence and supporting disabled staff. You can find further information on discussing your disability and how we can help you apply on this page.

A disability is not only physical but can also be mental, and is one which has a long-term and substantial effect on your daily life.
