St George’s University of London (St George’s) believes that becoming a parent or caring for a child should not, in itself, prevent any student from succeeding in their studies. St George’s is committed to being as flexible as possible to ensure that no student is disadvantaged due to pregnancy, paternity, parental responsibility, or maternity, whilst ensuring academic standards are not compromised. As a result of the Equality Act 2010, the legislation on pregnancy and maternity now includes students. Therefore we will ensure that pregnancy and maternity are not in themselves a barrier to starting or continuing on programmes of study awarded by SGUL.

This policy will be aligned to Staff pregnancy and maternity and Partner’s leave related to Maternity Policy and is part of SGUL’s Single Equality Scheme.

This policy has been developed with the student union, the Student Parents Association, HR, the Safety, Health and Environment Office, Registry and the Equality and Diversity Committee and approved by Student Support and Welfare Committee and Senate.
