Disabilities and health

Policy on the employment of people with disabilities or long-term health conditions

The University is committed to being a good employer of people with disabilities or long-term health conditions and to promoting a positive attitude on disability. It recognises that people with disabilities, whether obvious or unseen, face barriers in the workplace which can include assumptions, ignorance or the physical environment. This policy outlines the actions that the University is taking to ensure that people with disabilities or long-term health conditions are not unfairly treated.

Pregnancy, maternity and adoption

Policy on Support to Students: Pregnancy, Maternity and Adoption

Coventry University believes that becoming pregnant or caring for a child should not, in itself, detract from the student's experience or their success in studies. The University is therefore committed to showing as much flexibility as possible to facilitate students’ success, making sure no student is disadvantaged whilst ensuring academic standards are not compromised. The amount of flexibility that can be offered may vary between courses but all departments will follow the general approach set out in this document.

We are particularly pleased by the increase in staff who have informed the Institution that they have a disability or long-term health condition. We also welcome the increase again in students from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds choosing to study at Coventry.

Where available, comparisons are given with the whole higher education sector and modern universities (also known as post-92s or new universities).  This term specifically relates to any former polytechnics, central institutions or colleges of higher education that were given university status by by the government in 1992 as well as colleges that have been granted university status since then.
