Accolades & Honours

The University consists of a diverse body of people with different perspectives, values and attitudes. We seek to promote an inclusive environment where such differences are shared and explored; where any unfair treatment or discrimination is challenged and eliminated. Dr Louise Bright, Director of Research & Business Engagement

At the University of South Wales, there is a framework for progression for academics from lecturer through to Reader and Professor. This can be achieved via a number of different routes including research & development, teaching & learning, innovation & engagement and professional practice.

In addition to promoting equality of opportunity and inclusivity in all our activities, we will also promote the principles of diversity throughout the University. Diversity adds other dimensions to the equality agenda, by making sure that the different needs of individuals or groups are valued and celebrated.


The University works hard to ensure it provides an optimum environment for all individuals to flourish. As such we are Stonewall Champions, and are proud to have achieved an institutional bronze Athena SWAN award, and the HR Excellence in Research Award.
