We live in a global and diverse world; where businesses operate across international borders; where migration is the norm and not the exception and where higher education students come from a hugely varied range of backgrounds. At Kingston University, we recognise the inherent value of this diversity. We prepare our students for entering this globalised environment through enhancing our curriculum to incorporate the core values of diversity and inclusion.
To meet this aim, the University's award-winning Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Unit has created an Inclusive Curriculum Framework which informs our University's educational offer by embedding equality of opportunity, diversity and inclusion into the curriculum.
Our University is committed to ensuring that our curricula are accessible to all students whatever their background or learning styles. This includes recognising the importance of an international curriculum and a curriculum which respects and celebrates diversity.
By championing inclusivity, the University aims to offer a wide range of curricula that represent the diversity of its students; providing a curriculum in which they can see themselves and, of which, they can feel a part. Students and staff are encouraged to co-create the curriculum by sharing knowledge and experiences.
The University aims to equip its students with the skills, knowledge and understanding to succeed in a diverse working environment. This includes, for example, communicating and collaborating with managers, colleagues and business partners from a range of backgrounds, as well as serving a varied customer base. Through developing these skills, students will have the ability to foster innovation and have competitive advantage.
Our Inclusive Curriculum Framework ensures that all our students achieve their potential by seeing themselves reflected in the curriculum that they experience.
