Students attending the College follow many different faiths and come from a wide variety of cultural and religious backgrounds.
On no account will the College permit any form of discrimination against, or harassment of, students on religious or cultural grounds. While we fully endorse the right of students to freedom of expression, we will not permit students at College to make any unwelcome attempt to convert another person to a particular religious faith or ideological view.
As a way of ensuring equality of opportunity we maintain the College as a secular environment, ie we do not endorse any religion, faith or culture. This enables us to be as fair as possible in our treatment of students.
We wish to encourage the promotion of integration, understanding and mutual respect in College life for all students. However, this does not mean that we wish to promote a secular way of life. The College will seek to provide opportunities and facilities for those who wish to reflect on the relevance of their religious faith, practices and beliefs to their educational experience.
The College is a place of study. Our policies and rules are designed to create the best possible chances for all sectors of the community to study successfully. They are not intended to influence how you live your life outside College.Prayer facilities
As a secular institution, the College does not have a designated prayer room. However, religious groups (or individuals) can normally book an appropriate room for a prayer session when required. Room bookings are organised through the Student Engagement Manager.
