We are committed to embracing diversity and promoting equality among our students and are proud of our diverse international community of students with their religious and other beliefs or non-beliefs.

We recognise that ethnicity and culture are not indicative of religion or belief and that all religions have a variety and range of doctrines, which may reflect different values and customs. Fair treatment involves taking difference into account, not treating everyone the same.

The right to religious freedom means that no one should be forced to act against their convictions nor restrained from acting in accordance with their convictions in religious matters, in private or in public or in association with others. This right to religious freedom is given recognition through this code of practice.

We aim to provide a respectful environment for students and staff to celebrate and give external expression to their particular beliefs. In turn, students and staff must also respect the opinions and human rights of others, showing sensitivity and respect for the opinions of others when giving expression to a belief either individually or in association.

Quiet rooms and prayer rooms
