The purpose of this policy is to set a framework for how the University will support our students who have initiated the process of gender reassignment or who identify as transgender (trans). The policy and associated guidance give more detail on how the University Equality and Diversity Policy Statement applies to trans people.

This policy also supports members of the University in meeting the requirements of the Equality Act 2010, which lists gender reassignment as one of the nine protected characteristics on the grounds of which people are protected against unlawful discrimination. The policy also sets out the University obligations under the Gender Recognition Action 2004.

This policy applies to trans students with a particular focus on those who have indicated a wish to live permanently in a gender other than that to which they were assigned at birth (whether or not medical supervision or surgery are involved or contemplated). The policy covers people at all stages of the process of gender reassignment, begun or complete.
