The University of Strathclyde is committed to equality for all people irrespective of their protected characteristics of age, disability, gender reassignment, sex, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity. This is demonstrated in the University strategy of valuing and respect for individuals, and commitment to maximise the potential of each student.

Students and the Equality Act 2010

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has produced guidance on what equality law means for you as a student. This explains equality rights for students in higher education. All higher education institutions have legal obligations placed by the Equality Act 2010 prohibiting discrimination, harassment or victimisation against students.
