Equal opportunities monitoring


The University is committed to fulfilling the statutory requirements of all anti-discrimination law.

Monitoring staff and students by racial group and disability (and eventually sex, age, sexual orientation and religion or belief) is a specific legal duty for all higher education institutes and must be carried out.

In addition, higher education institutes have a statutory duty to assess the impact of all policies, procedures, practices and criterion on staff and student groups.

The benefits of undertaking equal opportunities monitoring and impact assessments, as well as fulfilling legal obligations, are that it allows the University to identify and remove any barriers to progress, whilst enabling Heriot-Watt to measure it’s performance and improve for the good of it’s staff, students and visitors.

Results of equal opportunities monitoring and impact assessments are on their way.
