University for the Creative Arts
Based in four locations, the University for the Creative Arts focuses on architecture, art, design, fashion, graphics and media.
We ranked all 29 universities in the south of England against the following best practice criteria to assess how well each institution raises awareness of help available to survivors and encourages them to report. Other marks are given for campaigns and extra measures which show the university’s engagement with preventing and responding to sexual assault. Each received a mark out of 5.
- Anonymous form: Not available, an incident report form is available on the website but there is no mention of sexual assault within this.
- Campaigns: No mention of active campaigns on the website, nor any societies publicly engaging with the issue.
- Sexual assault advice page: The university’s bullying, harassment and safeguarding policies all state that sexual advances will not be tolerated. These policies give information on what to do to raise a report.
- External contacts: A list of contacts includes the local rape crisis centre for each campus.
- Other measures: The students’ union has provided specialist training to on-campus bar staff to assist with identifying and reporting incidents, and has offered information and talks to students about consent.
