E4 Doctoral Training Partnership

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The E4 DTP aims to reflect and promote equality, diversity and inclusion through its diverse community, inclusive activities and fair recruitment process.

The E4 DTP aims to create and promote a safe, inclusive and supporting environment where all staff and students are treated fairly, equally and with dignity and respect so that they can develop to their full potential. We recognise, respect and value the differences that students, staff and partners bring to our doctoral training partnership.

We are committed to increasing the diversity of our applicant pool and recruited cohorts and as such encourage applications from students from diverse backgrounds and/or with protected characteristics. We strive to fight discrimination within our recruitment process and to give equality of opportunity to all our applicants. As such, we have widening participation mechanisms in place to specifically support applications from students who are from an under-represented group and who wish to disclose that information within their application (please refer to our application process for further details ).
