About this course
Consent Matters is a fully interactive and evidence-based course covering the areas of sexual consent,
communication and relationships, and bystander intervention.
This innovative course explores the nature of sexual consent. It shows students how to seek
consent, how to recognise it and how to identify situations where it can’t be given. Using
activities, quizzes and relatable character scenarios, it teaches students the importance of
good communication, clear boundaries and mutual respect. Within the context of social norm and bystander intervention theory, students will learn how to recognise difficult situations and possible ways of stepping in if others need help.
This course is for:
First year undergraduates and students in any year new to the university.
