New Stonewall guide for prospective students

New Stonewall guide for prospective students


Stonewall has launched
Gay By Degree, a guide which shows how gay-friendly every university is in the
UK, in recognition of the fact that lesbian, gay or bisexual students will want
to apply to a university that’s doing everything it can to make students feel
safe and welcome.

Gay By Degree , is an online guide,
supported by Square Peg Media, aimed at lesbian, gay and bisexual (LBG) 16 and
17 year olds who are choosing which university to study at. The Guide measures
how gay-friendly each university is based on a range of factors, including
whether there is a student LGB Society, if LGB specific careers advice is
offered, membership of Stonewall’s Diversity Champions Programme, policies and
practices that counter homophobic bullying and specific events for LGB

The Guide also contains
gay-specific advice about the university experience and a ten point checklist
Stonewall recommends every university should meet to recruit and retain the
very best gay talent – both students and staff. Luke Tryl, Stonewall’s
Education Officer, said: ‘With the introduction of tuition fees, students are
increasingly consumers and as such expect universities to cater to their needs.”
