Athena SWAN

The promotional branding for Athena Swan





On 29 July 2022 the department submitted an application to renew the national 'Athena Swan' 'Bronze' award, which we had held since April 2017. 

On 28 September 2022 we received official notification that our application was successful, and we are now re-accredited with Bronze status up to 30 September 2027.  This is recognition of our ongoing work to improve equality in the department for anyone who identifies as female.  This is not restricted to academic roles, but encompasses every area of the department. 

As part of our ongoing commitment to equality and diversity, if you have any feedback at any time which you would like to offer, you can do so confidentially by emailing
