Study with us
The Department of War Studies is committed to ensuring that all students and staff, whatever their background, feel welcome and can flourish. We recognise that issues of structural racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination pervade society, and that long-term work is necessary to ensure all staff and students can reach their full potential.
The Department is committed to an ambitious programme of reform led by the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committee. Open to all War Studies staff (professional services, estates and facilities, and academic) and students (undergraduate, postgraduate, PhD), all members are invited to shape our activities and goals on an equal basis.
The EDI team is led by Dr Aggie Hirst and Dr Alan James, who work closely with School and Faculty EDI representatives Dr Susan Martin and Dr Amanda Chisholm. We encourage all students and staff to get in touch via email@example.com and come along to Committee meetings to help set the reform agenda and deliver positive change for everyone.
