Inclusion encompasses more than access to higher education; it also involves the teaching, learning, assessment and curricula experienced by students after they arrive and throughout their course of study. An inclusive approach is fundamental to excellent educational practices, as it aims to ensure that all students, including those in protected groups, are able to participate fully and succeed academically at equal rates.

This section provides guidance for staff looking to make their teaching practice more inclusive and support for colleagues wishing to address awarding gaps in their courses.


Guiding Principles

Six key principles for inclusive teaching and learning developed with students and staff members of the Inclusive T&L Advisory Group.


Awarding Gaps

Learn about awarding gaps and why we need to address them, find out how to identify awarding gaps in your own context, and discover the types of support available to help Faculties and Departments develop interventions to address awarding gaps experienced by students in your courses.


Support & Initiatives

Resources to support you in ensuring that your teaching is inclusive and accessible for all. These include an interactive module on Inclusive Teaching & Learning from the Disability Resource Resource, a guide to using Content Notes, and the Black Advisory Hub.
