Black & Minority Ethnic Student Experience and Attainment Seminar
Date - Friday, 20 March 2015
Venue - SRHE, 73 Collier St, London N1 9BE
Network - Student Experience
Friday, 20 March 2015
This seminar explores the student experience and attainment of black and minority ethnic students. Although a long-standing research area in the US and many other countries, this has become an area of increasing policy interest in the UK. This seminar will explore current policy research, what BME students say about their experience of study, and discuss ideas for engaging and supporting them in the future. The seminar will provide an opportunity for participants to consider how research findings, policy and practice, as well as other research currently being undertaken to address the attainment gap, can inform practice and enhance the degree attainment of BME students in higher education. The need for taking an intersectional approach to student experience research and the challenges of broadly categorising research will also be explored.
