Antisemitism in Universities

BPP University

International Definition of Antisemitism


The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that it has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism. It has not provided evidence to support its claim and therefore we cannot assess with certainty whether the Definition has been adopted in full.

We have searched the University’s website and the public domain but have not found any reference to adoption of the International Definition of Antisemitism.

The University did not provide the date of adoption of the Definition.

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted an information request on 31st October 2022. On 11th November 2022, the University responded. A renewed request was submitted on 13th June 2023. As at 24th August 2023 the University has not responded. BPP University is a privately-owned university and so is not required to respond as it is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Students’ Union

When asked on 24th July 2020, BPP University Students’ Association failed to confirm whether it has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.


No incidents have been reported to us, however we recognise that antisemitism is chronically underreported and it is possible that there are incidents that have not been reported. To report an incident, please contact us.

Jewish life on campus

The incidence of antisemitism on a university campus and how the university and its students’ union address antisemitism are matters of serious concern. At the same time, they do not represent the totality of Jewish life on any campus. For further information about Jewish life on campus, please contact the local Jewish Society or Jewish chaplain.

No student should have to endure antisemitism. Campaign Against Antisemitism provides specialist help to students who have experienced antisemitism, including free legal representation. For assistance with antisemitism on campus, please contact us.
