Sexual Consent Awareness Week

Monday 25 October marks the beginning of sexual consent awareness week, a week of information aiming to raise awareness of the importance of consent and challenging myths around rape and sexual violence.

  • We are launching our ‘Let's be clear on consent’ module to help inform all members of our community about sexual consent.

The course content involves discussions of sexual violence, which might be difficult for some people. If this issue causes personal upset, please feel free to opt out.

You can access the course here  (best viewed on full screen, tablet or laptop)

  • An additional aim of the week this year is to promote the university’s new reporting platform Report & Support. Report & Support is a tool for students, staff and those within our community to report incidents they have experienced or something they have witnessed as well as access information on support services and campaigns.
