Equal Opportunities - English, Communication & Philosophy

Cardiff University is committed to promoting equality and diversity in all of its practices and activities, including those relating to student recruitment, selection and admission. The University aims to establish an inclusive culture which welcomes and ensures equality of opportunity for applicants of all ages, ethnicities, disabilities, family structures, genders, nationalities, sexual orientations, races, religious or other beliefs, and socio-economic backgrounds. This commitment forms part of the Equality and Diversity Policy.

The Cardiff School of English, Communication and Philosophy demonstrates this commitment by:

  • Making admissions decisions solely on the basis of the criteria listed within this procedure
  • Ensuring all staff involved in selection decisions have received equality and diversity training
  • Providing a contact for prospective disabled students to discuss potential access needs

The School participates in a number of schemes to encourage local and under-represented groups to consider engineering study such as Dragonfly Days, Open Days and Summer Schools.

Disabilities and Specific Needs

Applications from candidates with specific needs or disabilities are welcomed. All such applicants are encouraged to contact the School’s Disability and Specific Needs Tutor (Jill Burnett: BurnettJS@cardiff.ac.uk) at an early stage in the application process so that an assessment can be made of their needs and adjustments to the process made wherever these are reasonable. Documents can be supplied in large print, on audio-tape or on disk, and can be printed on different coloured paper. The Academic Manager, working with the University’s Disability Advisers, is able to give information about course delivery and access to the physical environment relevant to potential applicants with specific needs. Informal visits can be arranged during which applicants are able to view accommodation and meet academic and student support staff.

Applicants to whom offers are made are invited to an Open Day. All such applicants are invited to notify the School of any disability-related or special needs that they, or an accompanying visitor, may have so that reasonable adjustments may be put in place. In addition, where a student has disclosed a disability on his or her UCAS form and has been made an offer, the University Registry may invite that student to visit the University and meet with a disability adviser and the School’s Academic Manager to discuss the requirements of the course and what arrangements might reasonably be made to minimise any academic disadvantage arising from the student’s disability.

These measures ensure that the School and the University are able to provide an admissions process that is accessible to all students, and, thereafter, an accessible curriculum for applicants with disabilities or specific needs to whom offers are made.

Further information about the University’s provision for disabled students is available from its Disability and Dyslexia Service.
