  • The aim of the policy is to promote a working and learning environment in which harassment and bullying are known to be unacceptable and where individuals have the confidence to deal with harassment and bullying without fear of victimisation.


  • A complaint can be made where a student believes he/she is subject to:
    • unwanted conduct affecting the dignity of individuals
    • actions or comments that are viewed as demeaning and unacceptable to the recipient
    • this may include: physical, verbal, non verbal conduct or bullying


  • Students should seek to resolve issues informally in the first instance by following the Dignity at Work Policy.
  • If the harassment/bullying continues or is more serious, students should follow the Student Complaint Procedure.
