The course will introduce you to what it means to be an active bystander, how to recognise harmful behaviours, and how we can respond as active bystanders to keep the members of our communities safe.

Alternative seminar arrangements

The sessions are not recorded, so if you are unable to attend one of your seminars please contact the Programme Manager, Sam Parr, to make alternative arrangements.

Accessing support

The course content may be upsetting for some students at times. If you need support or simply to talk, you can reach out to your course tutor and/or explore the University's support services.

Course completion

You must attend at least four of the five seminars to complete the course. Once completed, you will receive a digital certificate of participation, and (for UG students) the course will appear on your HEAR.

Student feedback

Please complete the pre-course questionnaire prior to starting the course, and the post-course questionnaire once you have completed the course.

We value student feedback at any point, so please share any additional feedback and suggestions with your tutor and/or the Programme Manager, Sam Parr.
