"The university has made leaps and bounds in recent years in terms of inclusivity and diversity. There's been the introduction of gender-free toilets, a vibrant LGBT+ society and community and it's the first uni in Scotland to introduce a society purely dedicated to mental health awareness. There has also been a noticeable increase in international students, contributing to an ever-increasing diversity across campus."
