This project will address inequalities across the postgraduate research student lifecycle and the barriers that exist for students from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups – particularly for UK-domiciled students from Black British, British Pakistani and British Bangladeshi backgrounds, who are most acutely marginalised in PGR study and academic careers.
- Funding/partners to collaborate on bids and programme.
Available evidence of impact:
- Innovative practices emerging from programmes.
- Reduction in inequality within the PGR lifecycle for BAME PGR’s.
- Increase in embedding EDI across the sector within PGR programmes for BAME students.
