As members of the Abertay community, students are expected to play their part in creating a safe and welcoming environment, embracing diversity, and always treating everyone equitably, fairly, and with respect.
We also ask that our students help to keep themselves and those around us safe, by making sensible choices in relation to preventing the spread of Covid-19, and other illnesses.
Whether on campus, online or on social media, it is important our students understand that they are responsible for their own personal behaviour and sign-up to the Abertay Citizen Code.
The Abertay Citizen Code is an agreement between us as an institution and our student community to ensure everyone is aware of their responsibilities in creating an inclusive and welcoming University that treats everyone fairly and with respect.
Students are asked during online registration to agree to a number of principles, as outlined in our Codes of Student Discipline, which cover:
Academic conduct – promising to pursue academic studies with diligence, honesty and integrity, understanding and adhering to University policies on plagiarism, and freedom of expression.
Non-academic conduct – for example, following guidance in relation to Covid-19 on campus or in University-provided accommodation, taking positive action to prevent discrimination, respecting others’ boundaries and consent decisions, and generally acting as good ambassador for the University.
In return, members of the Abertay community have a right to feel safe and protected on campus, be seen and valued for who they are, and access support when they require it.
