If you have been affected by sexual violence or other forms of sexual misconduct such as harassment or stalking, the University will listen to you and support you.
We have a dedicated web page which provides lots of information about:
- Where you can get help - both at University and from external agencies
- Your options
- What to do if you want to report to the University or the Police
- What to do if you just want to talk but don't want to report anything
- What to do if you are supporting a friend or a colleague
The University and Students’ Union have also produced a joint strategy which sets out our approach to preventing and tackling sexual violence and misconduct.

The bystander approach by Graham does not simply aim to teach others how to intervene. It is an approach that is used to create much needed conversations around behaviour and social norms. Removing the traditional ‘victim, perpetrator’ approach, Graham is able engage audiences in conversations which cover a variety of social issues. The bystander approach used by Graham is a strategy to re-enforce the already existent pro-social norms that exist in society.
The style of training delivered by Graham supports the healthy majority which we know exists in society.
