As part of the information required in the application form, we ask for details of your gender, date of birth, etc. This information is of value to us statistically but will not in any way be used to influence whether or not your application is accepted. The PhDArts programme operates within a non-discriminatory, equal-opportunities ethos. Whatever the outcome of your application, you should feel confident that it has been assessed purely on its merits and without reference to any extraneous factors.
In a similar way, the PhDArts programme respects issues of data protection and freedom of information. Personal information held about you will be treated confidentially and you will have all statutory rights of access, on request, to all such information.
