Bullying is behaviour intended to upset, intimidate or threaten another individual. It could include anything from teasing, to threats or physical assault. Bullying is unacceptable, and if the individual persists, you can report this to the University.

Harassment, similar to bullying, is intended to intimidate, usually discriminating against a specific group. The unwanted behaviour could include spoken or written abuse, physical gestures, images or graffiti, etc. Some forms of harassment are also considered a hate crime. You can report these incidents to the University or the police.

A hate crime is a criminal offence motivated by prejudice against a person’s disability, sexuality, race, religion or gender identity. It doesn’t need to be physical violence, and can include verbal abuse, intimidation, threats, bullying, harassment, assault and damage to property.

Sexual violence is a general term to describe any kind of unwanted sexual act or activity, including but not limited to rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse, sexual harassment and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).  All forms of sexual violence are serious, and we encourage you to report it if something happens.
