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 School of Planning and Geography demonstrates this commitment by:
In the context of the professional degree in City and Regional Planning, the School supports the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) in its objective of promoting planning as a career path of interest to lively and committed people with an interest in improving quality of life and the environment. It also supports the Institute in its objective of actively encouraging women, people with disabilities and people with different social and ethnic backgrounds to enter the profession to make it more representative of the wider population.
Applications from candidates with specific needs or disabilities are welcomed. All such applicants are encouraged to contact the Cardiff School of Planning and Geography’s Disability and Specific Needs Tutor (Geraldine Bousie; Bousie@cardiff.ac.uk) at an early stage in the application process so that disability related needs can be discussed and adjustments to the process made wherever these are reasonable. Documents, including the School’s prospectus, can be supplied in large print, on audio-tape or on disk, and can be printed on different coloured paper. The Disability and Specific Needs Tutor, 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’s Disability and Dyslexia Service will contact the student to identify support needs and any adjustments which might reasonably be made to minimise any disadvantage arising from the student’s disability. All students have an opportunity to visit the University to meet with a disability adviser and specific needs tutor 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 Cardiff School of Planning and Geography 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.
