Learning Policy


Our learning policy is centred on respect for students. Our students are central to all activities of the university. We actively encourage and recognise student achievement and celebrate student success. Nugaal University’s learning policy fits with our Charter, the university learning agreement and our university code. These documents are discussed at your induction; copies are also available from student services. Our learning policy is led by senior university managers to make sure that it is carried out and is monitored by the university boards.

Equal Opportunities

Nugaal University exists in multi tribal, multi group and multi clan society. We value this diversity and we also wish to play our part in making sure that people are treated fairly and equally so that they can be successful. The university is actively committed to work towards eliminating unfair and unlawful direct or indirect discrimination and to promote equality of opportunity for all throughout the organisation. We will try to ensure that:
1· No person is treated less favourably than another on the grounds of race, tribal, gender, ability disability, nationality, ethnic and cultural origin, religious beliefs, age, social class, marital status, and union membership.
2· any person who is severely disadvantaged will be provided with the necessary support to enable them to achieve their potential.
3· the composition of the workforce at all levels broadly reflects the community it serves.
4· Students, employees and job applicants are treated fairly and consistently and are not subjected to unjustified conditions or requirements.
5· all services we provide to students are not unfairly and unlawfully discriminatory.
6· in awarding contracts to outside organisations, we will give due recognition to their practice regarding equality of opportunity within their organisation.
7· all company members, employees, students, outside organisations including contractors are made aware of their rights and responsibilities under existing legislation and the University’s Equal Opportunities Policy.

Disability Statement

Nugaal University has a disability statement which describes in detail the facilities available for students with learning difficulties and disabilities. You can get a copy of this from university compass in the near future. It explains our approach and describes what resources we have, in staff, equipment and adaptations to buildings, to help people with disabilities.
