Gender-neutral titles

 

In the UK, ‘Mx’ is now the most commonly used and recognised gender-neutral title and has been adopted by major national institutions such as HMRC, DWP, DVLA, the Identity and Passport Service, many high street banks and some universities. ‘Mx’ can be pronounced as ‘mux’, ‘mix’ or ‘mixter’.

The University has amended its staff and student systems so that individuals can choose to be addressed by the title ‘Mx'.

How can I change my University record?
