Statement on content guidance notes

A spokesperson from the University of Warwick said: 

"We believe students should be exposed to challenging ideas, stories and themes through their studies – and view it as an essential part of learning and understanding different perspectives. That’s why the university does not ask departments to issue content guidance notices for course materials. 

"However, a small number of departments and academics choose to do so, making their own judgement and rationale for deciding on what guidance they feel maybe needed for the coursework they set. We fully respect our colleagues right to exercise their academic freedom in this way, but the practice remains rare within the university – with less than 1% of our overall curriculum including any content guidance.”
