- University of Aberdeen Diversity Calendar

- Content Advice Guidance
As noted, the University aims with this Framework to ensure the continuation of challenging debate, professional autonomy, and academic freedom. The mental health and wellbeing of students is also a primary concern of the University. There are occasions in our teaching where topics, themes, language are explored which may induce a negative reaction in students who have been affected by similar experience in the past, and where discussion of such themes may re-induce a traumatic experience. If a course contains potentially distressing material or issues, students should be informed about this well in advance. This is to be done via content advice. Content advice may apply to specific material or topics within a course, or to an entire course. The document below outlines the University of Aberdeen's content advice guidance and some possible wording.
