Zero tolerance

- for abusive and inappropriate behaviour

At AU, we do not tolerate harassment, bullying, violence or discrimination in any form.

If you are the victim of inappropriate or abusive behaviour, you can go to your student counsellor for help and support. You can also get help from head of your department, the director of studies for your degree programme, and from other employees of your department. No matter who you turn to for help, you can be sure that it will be handled confidentially. 

At AU we define abusive and inappropriate behaviour as behaviour that feels abusive or inappropriate to you.

You can be sure that you can get help from specially trained student counsellors. And all student counsellors have a duty of confidentiality.

Examples of inappropriate and abusive behaviour:

  • Violence
  • Threats of violence
  • All forms of harassment, for example sexual harassment
  • Bullying
  • Discrimination of any kind
