Antisemitism in Universities

Courtauld Institute of Art

International Definition of Antisemitism


The Institute does not appear to have adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.

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

A request under Freedom of Information Act 2000 was submitted on 12th June 2023. As at 24th August 2023, the Institute has not responded, in breach of its legal duty.

Students’ Union

When asked on 25th July 2020, Courtauld Students’ Union 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.
