Does the University gather and monitor information on its students' sexual orientation?
Yes, from October 2013, new students have been asked for information on their sexual orientation. This will enable the university to analyse feedback from LGB students for the first time. Of course this information will be kept confidential and secure. However, if you are not sure how you feel about disclosing such personal information about yourself, this Stonewall guide, What's it got to do with you? is here to help explain why it is so helpful for you to do so. Remember, they’re not being nosy – the information might help to make your experience at university a better one. Data collected by the university or your employers should never be used to discriminate against you.
