Top UK Universities | Part Four – North East & North West

If you missed our previous part on the South East, check it out here, you can read our part on London here, as well as our East Midlands and East of England one here . As with those articles, all of these figures are from www.gaybydegree.com, which is compiled by Stonewall. They have an A-Z list of Universities, all them with a checklist. All our ratings below will be out of ten for the amount of items each university has checked off Stonewall’s list, so the higher the number, the better the uni for LGBT people. They rate each university by anti-homophobic bullying policy and mandatory training, student sexual orientation monitoring, explicit welfare support and info for LGB students, society for LGBT students, events for LGB students, consultation with LGB students, specific career advice for LGB students, LGBT Staff Network, Stonewall Diversity Champion and engagement with the wider community.

Each University’s name will be a clickable link, where you can view the Gay By Degree page for a more in depth breakdown.
