Equal opportunities and diversity: Disability

Oxford Brookes University’s Equal Opportunity and Diversity Statement states that equality is integral to all activities at Oxford Brookes. All applicants to and members of the University community will be treated fairly.   We value the diversity of our community which is enriched by the contributions of every individual.  

Oxford Brookes promotes equality of opportunity for disabled people. We want all disabled people to have a positive experience at Oxford Brookes, whether here to study, work or visit.

Our Single Equality Scheme 2010 sets out how we intend to promote equality for everyone at Brookes and replaces earlier separate schemes and policies for Race, Gender and Disability Equality.

The Equality Act 2010, which replaced earlier legislation including the Disability Discrimination Act, gave disabled people increased protection against discrimination.  Disability is one of the nine “protected characteristics”.
